    Personal Injury Solicitors in Worthing

    Pyrotechnics, quite literally, add a bit of extra bang to a party, so it’s no wonder people buy fireworks if they’re going to throw a bash. Every year, around the end of October, we hear more and more fireworks in the run-up to Bonfire Night, but there are many other occasions where fireworks play a part – not least New Year’s Eve.

    Unfortunately, fireworks can cause injuries. There’s no gentle way of putting this: they are dangerous. They can kill. They can maim. If you’re in a firework-related accident, you’ll be extremely lucky to escape without injury. Read on for expert legal advice in Worthing.

    Every year, a certain proportion of the caseload of any accident solicitor in Worthing at Accident Advice Helpline will be made up of firework-related claims. Someone might claim because a faulty firework injured them, or because a local council didn’t put proper safety measures in place and, as a result, they suffered burns.

    Organised displays are better

    Even though claims may be made against such agencies, it’s worth pointing out that you’re much better off attending an organised fireworks display. For a start, there will be medical assistance on hand, from organisations such as St John’s Ambulance. That’s bound to be more effective than your kitchen cupboard first aid kit.

    Handling a firework display at home

    Of course, it’s entirely up to you if you wish to hold a fireworks display at home, but at Accident Advice Helpline, we would urge you to be very careful indeed. Before the big day, make sure that you plan things properly. Here is some essential guidance from RoSPA:

    Open Claim Calculator

    • Keep the fireworks box closed – and take fireworks out one at a time
    • Don’t use naked flames near fireworks
    • Read the instructions on each firework before use
    • Don’t throw fireworks
    • Don’t put fireworks in your pocket
    • Light fireworks at arm’s length – stand well back

    That’s not all, but we can’t list everything here. Why not visit RoSPA’s website for more information?
