fireworks and a crowdFireworks are an essential part of Independence Day celebrations throughout the United States. Some people opt for small-scale celebrations, lighting sparklers and non-exploding fireworks with family and friends. Others go to large-scale municipal celebrations, where commercial firework displays illuminate the night sky.

The reason why these large-scale fireworks are illegal for those without a commercial permit is the danger they pose to property and people. Every year, more than nine thousand people are injured by fireworks. Approximately four people die from fireworks accidents in the United States each year.

If you were injured at a fireworks display this summer, you may be eligible to file a personal injury claim for your medical needs.

Steps to Take After a Fireworks  Injury

If you want to pursue a claim for monetary compensation after a fireworks injury, seek legal counsel after receiving medical care. Always put your health and safety first. Your attorney will be able to determine the negligent party in your case, who may be the group responsible for the fireworks display or the manufacturer of the explosive itself, if the accident was due to a firework malfunction. Gather witness testimonies from all parties who were at the scene of the accident to support your claim, including any police officers or emergency medical personnel who attended to the victim.
