Injury lawyers Southsea
“Remember, remember the fifth of November. Gunpowder, treason and plot,” goes the rhyme. Whether or not you remember the whole back-story to Guy Fawkes’ attempt to blow up the Houses of Parliament way back in 1605, it’s likely that you won’t be adverse to a nice large bonfire and a firework display sometime in the first week of November, depending on when the weekend falls.
Be it a small private gathering in your back garden with some fireworks you’ve picked up from a local supermarket or online, or a large organised event in an open space, perhaps a field or a beach close to you, getting together with friends and relatives and “oooing” and ahhing” at pyrotechnics is great way to spend and evening, even if you’re oblivious to the political and religious significance of the day.
Most firework parties, be they small affairs or organised displays, go off without major incident, but unfortunately, many of the accidents that do occur involving fireworks on Guy Fawkes Night are the result of people handling what amounts to highly-explosive material in an irresponsible fashion.
If you’ve had one too many drinks and are throwing fireworks about like they’re toys, you can almost half expect to get injured. But if you’re injured as result of another person or organisation’s negligent use of fireworks, you may be able to retain the services of first-class injury lawyers in Southsea and sue for compensation.

Any person or organisation putting on a firework display is legally bound to consider the heath and safety of the people attending the event. If they have not, they will inevitably leave themselves open to action from injured parties who have had the foresight to use the services of injury lawyers in Southsea.
Whether you’ve been injured as the result of a stray pyrotechnic blowing up in your face or somebody throwing a lit sparkler at you, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. If somebody has thrown a firework at you, it will first and foremost be a matter for the police though.
The amount you could stand to win by using injury lawyers in Southsea to sue for compensation after suffering a firework-related injury that was not your fault will vary, but could amount to many thousands of pounds, depending on the nature of your injuries.
