When considering personal injury and premises claims, people think of slipping and falling on properties, unsafe home conditions (like faulty railings), and similar scenarios. However, did you ever consider the impact that setting off fireworks can have on other people? A story from our home state of Pennsylvania regarding another type of personal injury claim, fireworks injury, was recently highlighted. Fireworks accidents are more common and more dangerous than you might think! A woman from Reading was recently the topic of a news article as a result of an accident several years ago. According to the news story, the woman was at a picnic near the 4th of July when she was struck by a firework. The firework caused damage to her face, and she lost an eye as a result. Over the years, she's had many surgeries to fix the long-term damage to her face. The man who set off the firework was sued.
