November is noted for bonfire night and schools and local authorities all over the country put on spectacular shows to celebrate; although Bonfire Night is a great chance to get together and have fun watching the beautiful fireworks, there is a risk of danger and if you’ve been injured in a public place, you may be able to claim compensation. If you’ve suffered a slip, trip or fall, which wasn’t your fault, for example, you should call Accident Advice Helpline for advice about making a personal injury claim.
Can you buy fireworks for Bonfire Night and use them later in the year?
If you’ve over-catered when buying fireworks for Bonfire Night and you’ve got rockets and Roman candles left over, you may be wondering if you can keep them for Christmas, Easter, Diwali or special birthday celebrations. When it comes to fireworks, it’s always best to err on the side of caution, as they can be very dangerous; however, provided that they are stored correctly, fireworks for Bonfire Night should keep for several years. It is important to keep fireworks dry, so store them in a dry, safe place and ensure they are well out of the reach of children. Avoid storing fireworks in garden sheds, as they can get damp.
