Fireworks are a thrilling spectacle that we often associate with celebrations and joy. However, accidents can happen, and injuries caused by fireworks can be devastating.
If you or a loved one has suffered injuries due to fireworks, you may be wondering if you can recover damages for your pain, suffering, and medical expenses. Don’t assume that you are helpless in this situation – you aren’t!
In this blog post, we will explore the legal aspects surrounding injuries caused by fireworks and provide you with valuable information to help you navigate this challenging situation.
Understanding Liability in Firework-Related Injuries
Who is liable for a fireworks-related injury depends on the circumstances of the accident. Generally, if a firework is used in a public place, such as at a park or festival, then the event organizer may be responsible for any damages or injuries that occur due to their negligence.
If someone chooses to use fireworks on private property, however, they should be aware of the potential risks and dangers posed by their use and assume responsibility for any damages or injuries that may occur. It's important to note that fireworks are considered explosives and should be handled with extreme caution.
That said, it’s not always the case that fireworks injuries that occur on private property aren’t without a potentially liable party. If you were injured as a guest at a private event where the property owner allowed people to bring and use fireworks, the property owner’s negligence can result in liability for your injuries.
In situations where you were injured by a fireworks device because it malfunctioned, presented hazards that it failed to warn about, or came with incomplete or incorrect instructions, the manufacturer may be liable when such factors directly contributed to your injuries.
