What are Fireworks Accident?
Fireworks are often used as a celebratory expression of light and color. They are especially prevalent around holidays such as the Fourth of July. Every year, there is an exponential increase in fireworks accidents during the summer months of June through August. Many individuals, families, and children all gather together to watch firework display shows. What many do not know is that fireworks are extremely dangerous and have the ability to cause serious bodily injury.
Fireworks have the capability to cause severe burns, bodily injuries such as loss of limbs or loss of sight, and even fatalities. While fireworks are a staple in American celebratory events, many people forget that fireworks are highly uncontrollable and unpredictable. There are numerous ways that a single fireworks accident can occur including by:
- The firework exploding in the user’s hand
- Fireworks exploding earlier than anticipated and injuring a nearby participant
- The firework traveling and exploding in an unexpected direction
- Fireworks heading in unexpected directions and causing fires
- Negligent handling of a firework
- Using fireworks while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Using fireworks while indoors
Mentioned above are only a few commonly seen instances in which fireworks can lead to severe bodily injuries, but there are many more.

Who is Liable in a Fireworks Accident?
While fireworks can be beautiful shows of color and light, such a display involves extensive care and in reality are extremely unsafe. Fireworks shows are considered to be dangerous activities. They require a higher standard of care than just the “ordinary care” standard. Failing to meet this higher standard of care holds the firework user strictly liable for their actions, or failure to take precaution for their actions.
The act of using fireworks whether that is privately with a few people or at a public park in front of thousands of people, a higher standard of care must be taken. Fireworks are not toys, they are explosive devices. If an individual is using an explosive device in a negligent or careless manner, they deserve to suffer the extensive consequences that follow.
