Did you spend Fourth of July enjoying fireworks? Although they go hand-in-hand with Independence Day, thousands of people are injured by fireworks each year. In these preventable incidents, victims can suffer burns, limb loss, and even death. If the injuries occurred on public property, at a licensed show, or as a result of properly using legal fireworks, victims may have the right to hold the at-fault party responsible for their injuries and recover financial compensation for their losses.
How Negligence Plays a Role in a Claim
Personal injury claims are centered on the element of negligence. This means that if a victim suffers preventable harm as a result of another person’s or entity’s negligence, they can pursue a lawsuit in order to recover compensation for the damages that occurred – including any medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and more.
Proving that another’s negligence more likely than not caused your accident is essential in an injury lawsuit, and something that should be handled by experienced personal injury lawyers. Whether you were injured at a public event, by a defective product, or by someone who unsafely operated fireworks, you may have a claim if the following can be proven:
- The other party who caused injury had a duty to reasonably prevent injury
- The other party breached that duty
- You or someone else was injured due to the breach
- That breach of duty was the cause of injury to you or someone else
