Products Liability – Dangerous Equipment Rollover

We represented the family of man who was killed when his commercial riding lawnmower turned over pinning him underneath.  Unfortunately, the lawn mower was too heavy for him to lift up alone resulting in him ultimately suffocating to death. Through the use of multiple experts, we determined that the design of the zero-turn mower was defective because it was not equipped with a rollover protection system (ROPS), despite the fact that the manufacturer commonly used such protective equipment on similar models. Our firm filed the lawsuit on behalf of the family against the manufacturer in the United States District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee. The case was resolved at mediation for a confidential amount.
