Americans have an ongoing and centuries-old love affair with fireworks. Long before the fourth of July became our annual fireworks extravaganza, rockets were flying, and firecrackers were exploding over the land in celebration of just about any type of holiday, and at weddings, birthday parties, and reunions. A pyrotechnic show rarely fails to bring smiles to the faces of those who see them, yet there is a dark side to the fun that is often ignored. Many serious injuries have been reported over the last two decades. Accidents and injuries don’t just happen in informal settings. Even professional firework displays can malfunction due to negligence or defective fireworks; and since they tend to use the larger types of fireworks, they can cause greater damage to more people.

Fireworks Accident Statistics

According to a report issued by the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission in 2016, there were over 11,000 injuries caused by fireworks in just one month in the summer of that year, many fireworks accidents involving children and a majority of them serious enough to require emergency room treatment. California is no exception to this dangerous trend.

Causes of Accidents

Fireworks are inherently dangerous and must be handled with extreme care to be used safely.
Many firework accidents are caused by:
  • Inexperienced individuals using them - often children
  • Inebriated and otherwise impaired individuals
  • People who are simply careless or negligent
Fireworks made inexpensively in foreign nations can often be highly unreliable, exploding prematurely and acting in unexpected ways.

Injury Liability for Fireworks Accidents

Liability for fireworks injuries and fatalities can be assigned if it can be shown that they were used in a negligent, careless, or incorrect way, that the products were defective, or that they were allowed to be used by unauthorized and inexperienced individuals.
