What You Should Know About Liability for Fireworks Accidents

Fireworks accidents are unfortunately common in the middle of the summer, especially around the Fourth of July. The liability for these accidents varies depending on the circumstances of the accident.

Here are a few of the potentially liable parties.

  • Manufacturers: Manufacturers are responsible for creating products that are safe to use and will not prematurely detonate. Injuries that occur due to malfunctions could result in the manufacturer being held liable.

  • Parents or guardians: Parents or legal guardians must monitor fireworks in areas where it is legal to set them off. Children lighting fireworks are the responsibility of their parents. Parents must keep their children safe at all times and should avoid allowing minors to discharge them.

  • Sellers: Only certified pyrotechnicians should have access to professional-grade fireworks. Fireworks sold at public stands can be liable for illegally selling professional fireworks that result in injuries.

  • Public entities: Municipalities and other public entities are often in charge of running local fireworks shows. If something goes wrong at the show there is a possibility the public entity could be liable.

  • Private individuals: The vast majority of fireworks accidents are due to negligence on the part of private individuals discharging them. Either they are illegally using fireworks in areas where they are not allowed or they fail to follow proper safety protocols.
