Burn Injuries Caused by Fireworks
Every year, thousands of people will be injured in the United States during Fourth of July celebrations – a large percentage of which are children. Fireworks and sparklers that are considered to be child-friendly and safe can pose a threat for severe burns. Many burn injuries can have serious, long-term consequences.
Burns may be caused by using fireworks incorrectly or by people setting off illegal fireworks and can have permanent effects on a person. A burn injury victim may require significant medical attention, cosmetic surgery, physical therapy and other expensive long-term treatments. Recovery can take years, multiple procedures or painful grafts.
Fireworks can be fun but setting off illegal fireworks is not. Each year during the Fourth of July holiday, people are arrested for selling, buying and manufacturing illegal fireworks. Some are charged with criminal arson after the fireworks they set off cause damage to property or personal injuries to other persons.
Even if you are using "safe-n-sane" fireworks, it is important to make sure you use them in an approved area. Keep in mind that illegal fireworks are even more dangerous and that an evening of celebration can potentially become a long-term problem.
After national holidays such as Independence Day, there are lots of people on the road, some of which are distracted. If you were unfortunate enough to be hit, bumped, rear-ended, side-swiped or involved in any other manner of car-to-car collision – take it seriously. Many injuries in a minor car accident can become major issues over time.
It is common to feel fine right after a car accident, only to develop pains in the next few days that take months or years of therapy to correct. Your first steps during a car accident should be to report the accident and get all parties insurance. Your second step should be to get a personal injury lawyer.
