Our Michigan burn injury lawyers at the law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. represent clients who have suffered serious burn injuries in a firework accident. Often times, burn injuries can incur significant medical expenses. If a person dies in a firework accident, a Michigan wrongful death case may be able to be pursued on behalf of the surviving family members.
According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), fireworks-related injuries apply to a wide range of people. Statistics show that 68 percent of males were injured from firecrackers, sparklers, bottle rockets, novelty devices, Roman candles, and reloadable shells compared to 32 percent of females injured at public fireworks displays.
Michigan fireworks injury lawyers want to ensure that you and your family stay safe this summer so we have provided some fireworks safety tips tailored by the CPSC that include the following:
- Never allow children to play with or ignite fireworks
- Never try to re-light or pick up fireworks that have not ignited fully.
- Keep a bucket of water or a garden hose handy in case of fire or other mishap.
- Light fireworks one at a time, then move back quickly.
- Avoid buying fireworks that are packaged in brown paper because this is often a sign that the fireworks were made for professional displays and that they could pose a danger to consumers.
- Always have an adult supervise fireworks activities.
- Never point or throw fireworks at another person.
- Never carry fireworks in a pocket or shoot them off in metal or glass containers.
- After fireworks complete their burning, douse the spent device with plenty of water from a bucket or hose before discarding it to prevent a trash fire.
- Make sure fireworks are legal in your area before buying our using them.
