Lawn Mower Injuries in Children
Hand & Wrist Broken Bones & Injuries
Because modern lawn mowers are easy to use, children and adolescents are often charged with the chore of mowing the lawn. However, both push and ride-on lawnmowers are powerful machines, and can cause severe and life threatening injuries. Contact with engine parts and blades can result in burns, broken bones, cuts, and even amputation.
Lawn mower injuries vary widely in severity, and should be seen by a medical professional as soon as possible to assess whether a conservative or surgical approach is best. Immediate medical intervention is the best way to ensure the best chance of full recovery.
