What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Preventing Firework Injuries

As summer approaches, many people are looking forward to family gatherings and outdoor parties to enjoy the sunny weather. At many of these parties people will be setting off fireworks to celebrate holidays or simply the beginning of summer. While watching fireworks can be an enjoyable pastime for people of all ages, they also pose certain hazards that need to be acknowledged.

If you are planning to feature fireworks at any get-togethers this summer, please bare the following safety tips in mind. If you have been injured because of another person’s failure to observe safety protocols, Jacksonville fireworks injury attorney Don Guthrie, P.A. is ready to assist you.

Firework Safety Tips

Even if you are nowhere near a professional display, fireworks of any kind can be very dangerous. To avoid serious problems like burns or eye injuries, make sure to:

  • Stay within the limits of your experience. Leave professional displays to the professionals.
  • Do not alter fireworks for “better” effects. This will make them unpredictable and hazardous.
  • If a firework does not go off, never try to relight it. When you are sure it is out, place it in water.
  • If alcohol will be served at your party, have a designated non-drinker set off the fireworks.
  • Children may love sparklers, but if they are under 12 years old, they should not handle them.

Unfortunately, even if you follow these tips, you cannot always protect yourself from other people’s careless behavior. If you have been injured by another party’s misuse of fireworks, a Jacksonville fireworks injury lawyer can inform you about your legal rights.
