In 2007, an 8-year-old girl was severely injured in a backover accident on a farm. The girl's father was using the farm owner's utility tractor to mow. The girl came from behind her father and got caught in the blades of the mower. Her father had pulled the mower back at the same time she came up from behind him. As a result, one of her legs had to be amputated later that day.
The manufacturer of the lawnmower argued that the lawn tractor was intended for commercial use only; however, this lawnmower is routinely used to mow school yards and anywhere you expect to see kids. Thus, the prosecution argued that the manufacturer should have had better safety precautions and labels on the item. The plaintiffs won a settlement just a year later.
