    Injuries caused by falling fireworks


    The most common type of injuries caused by falling fireworks is, of course, burns. Extremely painful, these injuries can have long-term results. Injuries can cause:

    • Muscle, tendon and/or ligament damage
    • Nerve damage and/or permanent scarring

    In extreme cases, injuries caused by falling fireworks can be fatal. In addition to the physical damage, victims of firework accidents may also suffer from emotional and/or psychological problems.

    Preventing injuries caused by falling fireworks

    Purchasing quality fireworks, using them in accordance with instructions and observing a few simple safety rules help to prevent accidents involving fireworks.

    Public firework displays

    Organisers of public firework displays have a duty of care to prevent members of the public being injured by fireworks. If they breach this duty and you are subsequently injured by a firework accident, you could be eligible to claim for compensation.
