Columbus Riding Lawn Mower & Tractor Rollover Accident Attorneys

We've Recovered Millions for Our Clients

Every year, thousands of people are injured and hundreds killed because of riding lawn mower and tractor rollover accidents. Especially with the advent of zero-turn radius mowers, which have become extremely popular, homeowners and landscapers alike are at a daily risk of rollovers that can injure or kill them. 

Indeed, as long as gravity exists, riding lawn mowers and tractors will roll over. The most common situations for such rollovers to occur are when the operator is cutting grass on a slope or along an embankment bordering a drainage ditch, pond, or stream. 

In these situations, a riding mower or tractor, including zero-turn mowers, can suddenly and without notice roll over, crushing and pinning the occupant. Tragically, when a rollover occurs next to a pond, drainage ditch, or stream, the operator can be pinned in the water, resulting in a drowning death. 

Causes of Rollover Accidents

While rollovers will continue to occur, virtually all injuries and deaths would be avoidable if manufacturers would simply install as standard equipment a rollover bar and seatbelt. 

Sadly, due to price competition and other reasons, manufacturers continue to sell riding lawn mowers and tractors, including many models of zero-turn mowers, without these lifesaving devices.

How Our Firm Can Help You After a Rollover Accident

Sadly, no one agency maintains records of how many people are killed in riding lawn mower and tractor rollover accidents. A quick look at the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) website reflects that during a 6 month period in 2016, over a dozen operators were killed in rollover accidents with 9 of them dying as the result of drowning.

This is just the tip of the iceberg since OSHA only compiles these statistics for deaths that occur when the operator is on the job. In other words, deaths of countless homeowners are not recorded because they are outside of OSHA’s jurisdiction. The lawyers at Rourke & Blumenthal have been handling riding lawn mower and tractor rollover accidents for years. We have successfully represented families who have lost loved ones as the result of being pinned by a mower rollover in ponds and drainage ditches.

 The attorneys at Rourke & Blumenthal continue to represent individuals who have been seriously injured as well as families who have lost loved ones as the result of riding lawn mower and tractor rollover accidents. Most zero-turn mowers weigh between 500 and 1,500 pounds and can easily crush their riders in a rollover incident or pin them under water if the rollover occurred next to a pond, stream, or drainage ditch.

The Columbus riding lawnmower injury attorneys at Rourke & Blumenthal have made it our mission to hold manufacturers accountable for these senseless injuries and deaths with the goal of convincing the manufacturers that providing rollover bars and seatbelts in order to prevent deaths and injuries is of the utmost importance. The team at Rourke & Blumenthal are ready to represent the victims of riding lawn mower and tractor rollover accidents in Columbus and throughout the United States.

    "You NEED attorneys who are experienced in TBI cases."
    Wonderful firm! We have worked with other attorneys in the past and Mike and Tim blew us away. If you have a brain injury in the State of Ohio, you NEED attorneys who are experienced in TBI cases, not just motor vehicle accidents or other personal injury matters. It makes a huge difference having an attorney who understands the medical, emotional, and financial issues a family suffers after a TBI. They are professional, compassionate, and great communicators. I would recommend this office to anyone.

    "Attorney Stoudt is the best lawyer I've ever worked with."
    Attorney Jon Stoudt is the best lawyer I've ever worked with. He did everything he could to help me. From the start, Jon was very responsive and always explained everything in terms I could easily understand. Jon's staff was also kind and responsive. I highly recommend Jon and would use him again in the future. Several months after being done with my case, another lawyer, handling a different part of the case, commented on how well Jon handled my civil suit.

    "Mr. Rourke and his team were extremely compassionate, knowledgeable and friendly"
    From the very beginning and to the very end of a long process, Mr. Rourke and his team were extremely compassionate, knowledgeable and friendly. I found them to be honest and easy to communicate with, day or night, weekday or weekend. Mr. Rourke was always professional but at the same time made you feel important and took as much time that was needed to explain the many steps in this process. Everyone of his team were very respectful and caring of everyone in my family involved in our case. I will have an admiration for Mr. Rourke and his team for the remainder of my life.

    "I will forever be grateful for their help!"
    I suffered physical injuries and a concussion from an auto accident in December of 2020. The team, from receptionist to attorneys, were nothing less than stellar, professional, kind, and hard working. The accident and aftermath were extremely stressful; but the Rourkes, Michael Senior and Michael Junior, helped me navigate the process while I focused on healing. For me, recovery from the accident was the most important part of the process. While I worked on recovering, Rourke and Blumenthal worked on negotiating a fantastic settlement for me. I will forever be grateful for their help!
