Most people are aware of the injury risks of Bonfire Night, but still accidents happen every year. Most people these days attend organised events to try and reduce the injury risks of Bonfire Night, but unfortunately it is always reported how children particularly have been injured, often through no fault of their own.
Of course fireworks are dangerous. The basis of them all is similar to gunpowder and they are designed to burn, flare or explode with a big bang. There are specialists that deal with them, who know all the health and safety procedures and produce huge and wonderful displays.
The injury risk of Bonfire Night
The injury risks of Bonfire night are known to all, and yet there will still be people who do stupid things with them, and do not keep well enough away from them while they burn. But there are also sometimes fireworks that do not behave as they should, and a malfunctioning firework can cause very nasty injuries.
If you have been injured on Bonfire Night, and it was not your own fault, you may be entitled to claim compensation. For instance, this could be because of the negligence of the event organisers or because a firework is faulty.
If you have been injured in a Bonfire Night accident, or in any other type of accident, and your injuries needed medical attention, you should speak with Accident Advice Helpline about making a personal injury claim. You have three years from the date of the accident to start your claim, but the sooner you get in touch with us, the sooner you could have your compensation.
Injuries of any sort can turn your life upside down, and even if that is just for a short time while you recover, compensation can help to make the process a little easier. It can help unburden you from the financial worries that accidents often cause, because of the extra costs and losses created by your injury.
We will not make your money worries any worse. No money is needed to start your claim, and we will not ask you to pay our legal fees if your claim is not won. We work on a no-win, no-fee basis so that every innocent accident victim has access to the justice they deserve.
