With summer approaching, grass throughout Ohio is starting to grow again, prompting homeowners and landscapers to begin the weekly ritual of mowing lawns. However, this chore can quickly turn dangerous, and can sometimes even be deadly.
Take, for instance, the case of a 4-year-old girl who was left seriously injured after being run over by a lawn mower. An article from Channel 5 News stated that the accident happened at 4:00 p.m. Monday on Jerusalem Road in Vermillion, Ohio. Police say that the child’s mother indicated the young girl was playing in the yard while she mowed the grass. She failed to see the child behind her when she put the riding lawnmower in reverse, hitting the child and knocking her to the ground. The child’s feet then went beneath the vehicle and got caught in the mower’s blades.
The child was airlifted to a local children’s hospital in critical condition. Once she arrived, doctors had to amputate the girls left foot and ankle, as well as four toes on her right foot. Despite the severity of the injuries though, doctors expect the girl to make a full recovery.
The Cleveland Personal Injury Lawyers with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller and McCarthy understand just how simply a single mistake can lead to a Catastrophic Injury. That is why they suggest keeping all children under the age of 12-years-old at least 50 yards away from running lawn equipment.

One of the most common traffic violations committed by any driver is driving with a burned-out headlight, taillight, brake light, or turn signal. While these traffic violations can be dangerous for drivers of pickup trucks, sedans, and SUVs, they can be extremely hazardous for drivers of semi-trucks—and the people driving near them. Burned out semi-truck […]
Merging onto a highway or interstate is always a little stressful, even when traffic is light. That’s because you’re required to enter the roadway at a fast enough speed to keep up with other traffic, but you may have only a hundred feet to accelerate and reach that speed. And when traffic is heavy, there […]
When many people think of surgeons committing medical malpractice, they think of mistakes made during major operations like open-heart surgery, joint replacement, and organ transplantation. When surgeons make mistakes during these procedures, patients can develop serious and often fatal complications. However, there’s another type of surgery where major mistakes can happen that can also put […]
MRSA infections are one of the biggest risk factors of hospital stays, especially in people who had surgery or who are recovering from serious injuries and wounds. While they start as skin infections, they can quickly worsen and cause life-threatening infections in tissue, bones, and organs throughout the body. According to a 2020 study published […]
