Independence Day is tomorrow, and many Americans are excited to grill and to celebrate with fireworks. However, fireworks can be incredibly dangerous if not used with caution.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that 9,000 people are injured by fireworks annually. Children under the age of 15 comprise 40% of these injured individuals. If you are going to allow your children to use fireworks, be sure to supervise them very closely to prevent injuries.
Many people are hurt by fireworks on account of misusing them. Reading and following the instructions on the label of a firework can greatly reduce the risk of firework-related injuries.
The firework injury lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. urge you to use fireworks responsibly and wish you a happy Fourth of July.
