Who Is Liable for Firework-Related Injuries?

Who Is Liable for Firework-Related Injuries?

Texas residents enjoy celebrating the Fourth of July with food, friends, and fireworks. Although most friends and families had a great time enjoying Independence Day, it’s not always the case for everyone.

Fireworks were involved with an estimated 10,000 injuries treated in U.S. hospital emergency departments in 2019 – most of them occurred during the Fourth of July season. If you were one of the many individuals injured during the Fourth of July, you might be wondering if you can seek compensation.

Can I Get Compensated After Suffering Firework Injuries?

Depending on the circumstances of the accident, different people or companies may be responsible for your firework injury.

The Homeowner

If you attended a party at another person’s home and you were injured on their property, they could be held liable for your injuries. The individual who throws the party and lights the fireworks has a responsibility to keep guests safe. To file a claim against the property owner, you will need to prove that the individual’s negligent behavior caused your firework injuries.

The Manufacture

The firework manufacturer might be liable for your injuries if you were injured because of a product defect. These cases can be difficult because many fireworks are manufactured internationally. You would need an experienced attorney on your side to help you with the complexities of filing a lawsuit against a manufacturer.

The Retailer

Firework retailers can also be held liable if they knowingly sold you a defective product. Even if they were unaware that the fireworks were defective, you may still be able to hold them accountable depending on the circumstances. It is best to review your case with an experienced attorney.
