Injured in a mower accident? Let our Beaumont personal injury attorneys help.
Everyday chores like mowing your lawn should not come with dangers of serious injury. When you purchase mowing equipment, you’re counting on the product to be safe and durable so that you can get the job done efficiently and risk-free. Many homeowners prefer using zero-turn radius (ZTR) lawn mowers for the product’s ability to simplify and expedite the task. However, if a ZTR motor was manufactured defectively, yard work can become deadly.
At Brasher Law Firm, PLLC, we understand the anger you may feel if you were injured or lost a loved one because of a lawn mower defect, and want to help you find peace and financial relief through legal action. With more than 22 years of combined experience practicing personal injury law, our attorneys have successfully represented clients in numerous product liability lawsuits. Our primary attorney, Clint Brasher, is board certified in personal injury law, which means that you can feel confident that he will help you face ZTR mower manufacturers with proven aggressiveness and expertise.
The Dangers of ZTR Mowers
Whether due to poor design or human error, product defects cause serious risks to consumers who put their faith in manufacturers to produce safe and reliable equipment. This is especially true in the case of ZTR mowers, which are powerful, heavy tools with parts and features that can be deadly if not secured.
Some of the most common dangers of ZTR mowers include:
- Loss of steering – operators of ZTR mowers have been known to lose control of steering, especially when making a sharp turn downhill.
- Insufficient traction – especially when mowing wet terrain, traction failure can lead to sliding.
- Unsecure blades – sharp blades that are not secured to the machine can come loose and result in serious lacerations or even death.
- Rollover protection failure – ZTR mowers are supposed to include a roll bar and a seatbelt to help prevent injury; if not, or if they fail, rollovers can be fatal.
Of course, there are many other risks to operating ZTR mowers, and our team of legal professionals will investigate every detail of your accident to determine whether a manufacturer should be liable. We will use our team of industry experts to help us build an aggressive case on your behalf to fight for accountability.
Were you injured by a ZTR mower?
When a ZTR mower is defective, the consequences can be deadly and costly. If you’ve been injured in a mowing accident, you not only have to suffer physical pain and impairment, but you might see a buildup of expensive medical bills as well. At Brasher Law Firm, PLLC, we are dedicated to helping you seek justice.
Injuries that can result from a ZTR accident include:
- Severed limbs/amputation
- Broken bones

With our help, you can fight for compensation to cover medical expenses and other financial consequences of a manufacturer’s negligence through a personal injury claim.

I was scared to death after being on the witness stand for several hours. Clint Brasher kept reassuring me but, when we broke the trial for the day and I was offered $100,000.00, I wanted to take it. Clint advised me not to and that we would do better with the jury. While it was hard, I followed his advice. The verdict the next day was for $240,000.00 plus interest. I recommend anyone with a legal problem to call Clint Brasher. He was not only a skillful advocate, he was a friend to me during this difficult time.Edward Arabie
After being told by multiple lawyers that I really had no case or that my chances of being awarded any settlement was very slim, I was referred to the Brasher Law firm. Nishi worked on my case and with very little effort on my part, she put together my case with an opening statement and presentation that put my opponent on their heels. She set a goal from the start and didn’t relent until her goal was met and I got what was owed me. Thank you Nishi for knocking it out of the park!L. Smith
