Common Injuries from Fireworks
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, firework injuries are on the rise, growing by 25% between 2006 and 2021. Some of the most common areas of injury include the hands, fingers, head, face, ears, and eyes.
Firework accident victims may suffer from a variety of injuries, including burns and smoke inhalation. In some cases, firework accidents may even lead to catastrophic injuries that create permanent disabilities, like amputations, loss of hearing, loss of sight, or traumatic brain injuries. Many people also die each year from firework injuries.
How Personal Injury Cases Work for Firework Accidents
The vast majority of firework products are designed and manufactured in China. Therefore, we often can’t go after the manufacturer like a normal product defect case. However, there are other avenues where you can seek compensation.
If you were injured in a firework accident, you can usually seek compensation from the retailer of the firework. In fact, due to the dangerous nature of fireworks, the state of Texas requires all firework retailers to maintain a minimum of $200 million in insurance for these purposes.
As a board-certified personal injury lawyer, Daniel Horowitz seeks compensation from firework retailers so you can recover from your injuries. We work hard to get you a fair settlement after you were injured by defective fireworks. Our team handles everything from filing the claim to negotiating with insurance adjusters to make sure the settlement covers your physical injuries, emotional injuries, and property damage.
