Might want to check your seat safety switch didn't fall out when you jumped at the sound of the blades trying to grind up the clamp. Wonder if the clamp bounced around above the deck in the process. Along with the seat safety most common they along with the seat switch have a clutch/brake saftey, and PTO (tied to the blade ingagement lever) and mow in reverse cutout that is around reverse pedal or lever. First would be to make sure those switches are all still plugged in and don't look damaged.
