The statistics show that the main cause of wrongful death suits is a result of faulty equipment. The reason behind these may be design defects, in the manufacturing of the product, negligent maintenance or negligent equipment operation.
An example of a case involving faulty equipment occurred in 2003 and included a city park employee and a lawn mower. As a worker and operator of the lawn mower he had a right to expect that the mower would operate properly. In reality the mower had a defective parking brake. This caused the cable to corrode and break event though it was supposed to be covered in vinyl. The worker shut down the machine and got off. After he got off, the lawn mower started to roll away. In trying to stop the 6,000 pound machine he was run over. He died as a result of this accident.
