Personal Injury And Fireworks Season
Summer is truly the season of fireworks. Most families in Florida enjoy the beautiful displays around Independence Day, but lots of times fireworks are available all summer. Businesses seem to pop up out of nowhere, selling fireworks to anyone who happens to walk by. Until the Fourth, they offer the most expensive fireworks at the best prices. Just after this, though, they mark down their prices and offload inventory like everything’s, well, on fire.
This means that fireworks are available pretty much all summer long around Ft. Lauderdale and other areas. While these interesting pyrotechnic displays are fun to play around with and entrancing to watch, they can also be very dangerous. This is why it’s vital to practice safety with fireworks. Emergency rooms are absolutely full of patients over the Fourth of July holiday who have been playing with these potentially destructive toys.
In order to protect yourself and your family, make sure, first off, that you’re buying decent fireworks. While they seem simple enough, they’re really very neatly engineered little pieces that are meant to work in certain ways. A firework that doesn’t work as it should may be hazardous, as it will be totally unpredictable. Also, practice things like setting a long fuse on fireworks and backing away out of harm’s reach.
Sometimes innocent bystanders are harmed due to the negligence of others when it comes to fireworks. If you’ve suffered from an injury due to someone else’s stupidity with these dangerous items, you may need to consult with a Ft. Lauderdale personal injury lawyer. As the old saying goes, “It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt.” If you’ve been injured by fireworks this summer, you may be able to file for recompense for your hurts, medical fees, and lost time at work with the help of a qualified lawyer.
