Product Liabilities of Fireworks
Another Fourth of July has come and gone in Utah. The day was filled with barbecues, family gatherings, parades, and reflections on the state of the country. Independence Day has always been a heavily celebrated holiday in Utah. Provo has a large parade and the Stadium of Fire is also held in Provo. The Stadium of Fire presents a patriotic show with one of its main attractions being a fabulous firework show. The fireworks are large and loud but the show uses professionals to light off the fireworks as well as other safety measures to protect spectators so no personal injuries arise. The product liabilities of fireworks can be high so many precautions are taken to ensure safety.
Person Injuries Are Caused By Firework Use
While big firework shows use many safety measures, most firework use in Utah is done by average people in the street of their neighborhood. These Utahans may not know the dangers of firework use and as such, do not take the proper precautions to minimize the chances of a personal injury from fireworks. The danger of fireworks was recently compounded with the passage of a new firework law passed by the Utah State Legislator. The new law allows aerial fireworks to be used by people in Utah. These fireworks can shoot high into the air and if not used properly, can cause serious injuries.
A West Jordan teenager was hurt yesterday while lighting a firework. The 14 year old boy sustained minor injures when he was lighting a firework. The young man believed the firework did not light but when he peered down to see what the problem was, the firework exploded knocking him unconscious causing minor bruising to his face. Luckily the boy was not seriously hurt and hopefully there won’t be any long term brain injuries. His accident, however, is a good example of the dangers of firework use. People should carefully use fireworks so they won’t need the services of a Utah personal injury attorney.
