    All but the most Scrooge-like would agree that Guy Fawkes Night is one of the most enjoyable evenings of the year. Whether you’re going a local public display or enjoying a private party at your home or round someone else’s, it’s a great chance to catch up with some friends and “ooo” and “ahh” at a few fireworks. That’s if things don’t go wrong.

    Fireworks can be incredibly dangerous, and if not handled in the correct way, can pose a significant risk to people’s safety. If you’ve been injured in a firework-related accident that you were not to blame for, there will be a chance that you may be able to take legal action against the person or organisation that was responsible for the incident with the assistance of an injury lawyers in Saltburn-by-the-Sea solicitor.

    Firework injuries can include superficial burning, nerve damage, disfigurement and serious scarring or soft tissue damage. In some cases, firework accidents can even be fatal.

    Collecting the evidence

    If your injury lawyer is going to stand a good chance of winning you the maximum amount of compensation you’re entitled to, you’re going to need to have made sure you’ve collected as much evidence relating to your accident as possible. Although this probably won’t be easy if you’ve just suffered a serious firework injury, you should gather as much evidence from the scene as you can. If you cannot, try and ask a friend or relative to do so for you.

    It would be best if you could collect the names and contact details of any witnesses that saw your accident as well as information about the person or organisation that was organising the display. You should also try to get hold of the packaging of any fireworks you suspect may have been faulty. Most importantly, your injury lawyers in Saltburn-by-the-Sea solicitor will need medical evidence of your injury, but if you’ve been involved in a firework accident, it will be likely you’ll have seen a doctor afterwards.
