    Chinese lanterns: The risks

    Chinese lanterns have become increasingly popular in recent years. Typically used at events like weddings or birthday celebrations, Chinese lanterns last longer than fireworks and can float for a long time in the sky. The lanterns have a simple design – lit inside, with a relatively transparent casing, they can be a beautiful aerial display at night.

    Since becoming more widespread, there have been several instances where Chinese lanterns have caused accidents. They can come down while they are still lit, starting a fire in wooded areas. They can also land in someone’s garden or on a roof, or they can suddenly extinguish when they are high up in the sky and hit someone. Of course, most Chinese lanterns are perfectly safe to use, but this is unlikely to comfort you if you were involved in an accident.

    Open Claim Calculator

    To give you the best Chinese lantern injury advice for your accident, it would help if you gave us as much information about your accident as possible. We need to know when and where the accident happened, and who caused it. To pursue a claim for compensation, we need to establish that someone else was at fault for your accident. The basis of a strong claim typically includes witness statements, photographic or video evidence of the accident, a copy of your medical records and receipts for any expenses related to your injury. Such evidence helps us to improve your eligibility to claim the level of compensation that you deserve.

    The benefits of claiming compensation

    When you are injured in an accident, you may suddenly incur expenses that you had not budgeted for. You may be liable to pay medical fees or prescription costs, or have to temporarily stop working – potentially leading to a loss of earnings. A successful accident claim can help you pay towards your new financial obligations and give you some peace of mind at a difficult time. Call us today to get started!
