Simi Valley Firework Burn Victim

As an experienced California Burn Attorney we urge you to take all steps to reduce the risk of a 4th of July fireworks incident. If you are injured or burned with fireworks of any kind, please call us for a free consultation.

Below are steps you should take to avoid injuries or burns due to fireworks.

  1. Never allow young children to play with or ignite fireworks.
  2. Make sure fireworks are legal in your area before buying or using them.
  3. Avoid buying fireworks that come in brown paper packaging as this can be a sign that fireworks are made for professional displays and compose a danger to consumers.
  4. Adults should always supervise firework activity.
  5. Parents often don’t realize that there are many injuries from sparklers for children under 5, as sparklers burn at temperatures approximately 2,000 degrees hot enough to melt some metals.
  6. Never have any portion of your body directly over the firework device when lighting a fuse. Move back a safe distance immediately after lighting.
  7. Never try to relight or pick up fireworks that are not fully functioning.
  8. Never point or throw fireworks at another person.
  9. Keep a bucket of water or fire extinguisher in case there is a fire or mishap.
  10. Light one item at a time and move back quickly.
  11. Never carry fireworks in a pocket or shoot them off in metal or glass containers.
  12. After fireworks complete their function, douse the spent device with plenty of water from a bucket or hose before discarding to prevent a trash fire.
