Chicago workers’ compensation attorney, lawn mower accidents, amputations, lacerations, maintenance employeeIn just a span of six weeks, two Chicago-area workers were killed in lawn mower accidents. One of the workers, who was employed at the Hanover Park Public Works Department as a water treatment operator, became pinned underneath a large lawn mower in a pool of water, drowning to death. The other worker was a maintenance employee at a suburban country club. While riding the mower, trimming grass on an incline, the mower tipped over and crushed him to death. The cause of death was traumatic asphyxiation and blunt force trauma, according to CBS Chicago.

These tragic stories serve to remind all of us that large machinery always poses a threat to the workers who use it, and large riding lawn mowers are dangerous no matter how much experience and no matter how many years you have been on the job. Both men were well into middle age, and the former had worked for his employer for more than 19 years.
