New Year’s Eve is a time of celebration for many individuals throughout the state of Indiana and the nation, filled with drinks, merriment, the making of personal goals, and reflection of the year past. Unfortunately, as we all know, the amount of alcohol consumed on this day tends to lead people to make less-than-safe decisions – particularly involving fireworks.
While fireworks can be good fun and safe in the right hands, bottle rockets, firecrackers, and Roman candles can pose a considerable injury hazard to those who use them if the proper precautions are not taken. This leads to emergency rooms being flooded with individuals injured from New Year’s fireworks every year, with firework sellers and manufacturers subsequently being hit with major lawsuits over the resulting damages.
Improperly used fireworks can cause any of the following:
- Serious burn injuries
- Lost limbs and fingers
- House fires
