    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    If you’re planning any kind of event that involves fireworks, you should make sure that everything is as safe as possible. If you don’t, and someone gets injured, then they might put in a claim against you through an accident solicitor in Oxfordshire.

    Beware fireworks

    Fireworks are dangerous. This is something we all know, but it doesn’t stop us from buying them or attending events that feature them. It’s all part of our culture, after all – especially Bonfire Night, on 5th November.

    The best thing to do is to attend an organised event if possible. Things can sometimes go wrong at these events, though – but if you get injured at such an event, there’s nothing to stop you from putting in your own claim through an accident solicitor in Oxfordshire.

    Firework safety

    RoSPA has guidelines to help you if you’re using fireworks. Some of these things may seem obvious, but it’s worth recapping, just in case you’ve forgotten. Here is a selection of points taken from their advice:

    1) Keep the fireworks in a closed box and select one firework at a time.

    2) Read the instructions for each firework – and follow them.

    3) Light the firework at arm’s length and stand well back.

    4) Don’t smoke or have any naked flames near fireworks.

    5) Don’t point any rocket fireworks in the direction of spectators!

    There are more tips available from RoSPA, and elsewhere, but this small list gives you some idea of what to do if you’re using fireworks.

    What to do if you get injured

    If you are unfortunate enough to suffer an injury, such as a burn, at a fireworks display – from a firework, a sparkler, or the bonfire itself – then you should seek medical attention as soon as possible. If it’s an organised event, some First Aid should be available on site.

    Once you’re feeling better, you should consider making a claim through an accident solicitor in Oxfordshire. If you win your case, you will be awarded a payout for the injury, as well as any expenses you incur as a result of the accident.
