The 4th of July is one of the more festive holidays we celebrate as Americans. With school kids out on summer break, and many adults having the day off, lots of people use the opportunity to relax and party with friends and family. However, there is one aspect of the 4th of July that sets folks up for potential danger – fireworks and firecrackers. It’s around this time of year that we start seeing tents in parking lots filled with people buying these items. When used responsibly, they are relatively safe. The problem is that not everyone respects this potential for danger. And when accidents happens, you may find out that you need the assistance of an experienced attorney.
Negligence is a legal cause of action which holds a defendant liable for injuries that occur as a result of his failure to act reasonably given the surrounding circumstances. We all have a duty to act with due care. What does all this mean? Very simply, the analysis is essentially a single question: What would a normal, reasonable person do under the same set of circumstances that the defendant found himself in? It is easy to see how this legal theory applies to fireworks and firecrackers – especially when alcohol or drugs may be involved. Actually, the simple fact that one has consumed alcohol or used drugs while igniting fireworks or firecrackers may be negligent in and of itself should injury result. There is no clear cut answer for what constitutes negligence in a setting such as this. One would need to contact an experienced personal injury attorney to find out whether a legitimate claim exists.
In other cases, it is possible that the firework or firecracker used was defective in some way which caused injury. In these cases, one would need to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer of the device, or under limited circumstances against the merchant who sold it. A manufacturer can be held liable under a products liability theory for any of the following actions/inactions: negligently designing the product, negligently manufacturing the product, failing to warn of the products dangers, breaching a warranty or misrepresenting (either fraudulently or innocently) the product. Again, for a clear picture on whether you have a legitimate cause of action under this theory, you need to contact an attorney.
