Have a fun and safe Fourth of July

Posted on July 2nd, 2012 No Comments

Fireworks are the quintessence to celebrate America’s independence, but they can also be dangerous when handled by non-professionals. When celebrating this week, please exercise caution around fireworks and sparklers.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, children are the most at risk of being injured by fireworks. About 40 percent of individuals who suffer firework-related injuries are children younger than 15 years-old.

The size of the firework is not a gauge of its explosive power or danger. Sparklers, for example, burn at 1200 degrees Fahrenheit and are responsible for more than a quarter of all firework-related injuries.

If you or someone you love has been injured by fireworks due to another person’s negligence, contact the personal injury lawyers of the Sampson Law Firm today at 502-584-5050.
