Independence Day is fast approaching, and to prepare for the ensuing celebrations, it’s important to know how to stay safe while using fireworks.
A report filed by the Consumer Product Safety Commission shows that an average of 9,000 people are injured by fireworks every year. The Fourth of July, well-known for its firework displays, can see a huge surge of these kinds of injuries.
Many firework injuries arise from misuse of these devices. If you plan on using fireworks, make sure to read and follow all of the directions on the labels.
The Birmingham personal injury lawyers of Yearout & Traylor, P.C., urge responsible fireworks use and wish everyone a safe and happy Fourth of July.
