Fourth of July Firework Injury Attorneys
of July is unarguably the greatest day in United States history. It marks the birth of our nation, and the beginning of our liberation under British rule. Specifically, on July 4,
1776, we celebrate the independence of the greatest country in the world. Some famous quotes from this historic day include:
“This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.” (Elmer Davis)
“I know not what the course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death” (Patrick Henry)
Most recently, the fourth of July is known for fireworks, and fireworks lead to firework injuries
. While this time of year is a time to celebrate, there are nearly 10,000 firework injuries every year, 69 percent of which occur on July 4th
. These injuries are also most prevalent in children under 15. These injuries are usually caused by amateurs, and are generally a result of:
- Firecrackers (1600 instances)
- Rockets (900 instances)
- Sparklers (1100 instances)
However, firework may also be a result of poor management on the part of the controller, or negligence of the operator, or another person’s careless behavior . They may be a result of a product defect
of the firework itself. Therefore, even if you have been acting carefully around fireworks, you may have suffered a serious injury.
