Fireworks are a part of summer that most people look forward to. Few people stop and realize that what they are actually dealing with are explosives. Any lack of care in their handling or any defect during the manufacture or design process could lead to very serious injuries or death. Every year, numerous injuries and fatalities are caused by defective fireworks.
Pursuing just compensation after being injured by fireworks that were defective or mishandled can be challenging. The manufacturer is likely to be an overseas company. If you were injured by a professional display of fireworks, it may have been put on by local or city government, which raises a variety of special issues.
Blast and burn injuries from explosives are very rare in Virginia. Most personal injury lawyers may not be as familiar at dealing with these injuries as more common forms of personal injury such as car accidents or medical malpractice. There are very complex federal, state and local rules relating to the manufacturing, shipment and use of fireworks. Our attorneys are experienced and have obtained the largest verdict in Virginia and one of the largest in the country relating to the improper use of fireworks.
These complicating factors mean that your first step after being injured by fireworks should be to secure the representation of an attorney who is familiar with the issues this type of case presents.
