Firework Injury Solicitors 

If you have suffered from burns or injuries while at an organised firework display or event, you should be able to make a personal injury claim against the company or local authority in charge of organising the event. 
As part of their responsibility with organising the event, these people have a legal obligation to meet strict health and safety regulations, and take all necessary steps to keep people safe. 
Therefore, if you have been injured as a spectator at a firework display, and the accident was not your fault, those in charge of organising the event could be liable for your injuries, and you can make a personal injury claim against them with our NO WIN NO FEE injury solicitors. 
If you or your child has been injured while at a public firework event, you should always report it to the event organisers as soon as possible, and file an official complaint, ensuring to get recognition of this complaint or the name of the person you spoke to, for future reference. 
NHS Digital figures reveal that almost 4,000 people received treatment at their local A&E between 2015 and 2019 for personal injuries related to fireworks and bonfires, with bonfire night being one of the busiest nights of the year for the fire and rescue services in the UK.  
Injuries to children make up a large number of these, with over 550 children under 16 being taken to A&E in the four weeks surrounding bonfire night alone. 
Fireworks burn at almost 2000 degrees Celsius, and can travel at speeds of up to 150mph, making it quite clear why they can cause serious injuries to those who make mistakes, or don’t act safely when using them. 
Our personal injury solicitors specialising in firework burns and injuries know all too well how devastating these injuries can be for children and families, and have put together a simple guide to staying safe this bonfire night, and avoiding accidents and injuries, while still having fun for all of the family. 
To learn more about making a firework injury claim against an organised event or local authority, contact our personal injury solicitors online here for a free, no-obligation consultation regarding your potential claim. 
In recent years, fireworks have become much more readily available, and a much more common part of family celebrations, birthday parties, and private firework displays held in back gardens on bonfire night. 
However, with this, comes a huge risk of accidents and injuries, with fireworks being let off in small areas, with no safety regulations in place, and by people with no training, and often after having alcoholic drinks.  
When people attempt to let off fireworks they might run into problems with the fireworks and come to find that the product is faulty, or that there are not adequate instructions with the fireworks informing of how to use them safely. 
This can result in fireworks not going off properly, or taking too long to go off, and this, in addition to fireworks being let off when it's dark, and we can't always read the instructions, is what increases the chances of people becoming injured as they try to solve the problem. 
If you have been injured in any way at a private firework display due to faulty fireworks, or even at home, due to the inadequate instructions on how to ignite the fireworks, make sure to keep the receipt and packaging for the product, and contact our firework injury solicitors about making a personal injury claim for financial compensation. 
Our personal injury solicitors have more than 30 years' experience in settling all types of personal injury claims, on a no win no fee basis, and are well experienced in making defective product personal injury claims, and you can learn more about these here. 
If you or your child has been injured while letting off fireworks in your back garden, or on your own property, you could be able to claim financial compensation for your injuries from your home insurance policy, if this covers injuries. 
This can be a complex process, and one that can require the help of a specialist solicitor, such as MG Legal. To learn more about claiming firework injury compensation through your home insurance policy, contact our personal injury solicitors today and speak to a solicitor within one working hour. 
There are a number of legislations in the UK that are in place to regulate the use fo fireworks, and prevent firework accidents. the main pieces of relevant legislation are the Fireworks Regulations 2004, and the Pyrotechnic Articles (Safety) Regulations 2015. Under these legislations, different fireworks are categorised for the hazard that they present to health and safety, and the level of noise that they create. 
Depending on the category within which a specific firework falls into, there can be further regulations on their use, as follows: 
Category 1- these fireworks represent a very low hazard or risk of injury and are intended for safe use in confined areas. Some examples include party poopers and sparklers. 
Category 2 and 3- Adult fireworks are categories 2 (garden) and 3 (display), and it is illegal to supply these to those under the age of 18. 
Category 4- are more dangerous and can only be purchased by trained professionals. 
Under the Pyrotechnic Articles (Safety) Regulations 2015, there is also a specific responsibility placed on firework manufacturers to ensure that fireworks are designed and manufactured in accordance with essential safety requirements, and must comply with labelling requirements. Where manufacturers do not take the necessary safety precautions for their products, and as a result people are injured by the fireworks, they are open to having a firework injury claim made against them. 
To learn more about the safety regulations involved with firework use, and whether you are eligible to make a firework injury claim with our specialist solicitors, simply get in touch with us online here and speak to a solicitor within one working hour. 
Yes. If your child has been injured because of a firework accident that was not their fault, you can make a firework injury claim on their behalf for financial compensation. 
To learn more about the process of making a personal injury claim for your child, see this here, or contact our NO WIN NO FEE Solicitors today for a free, no-obligation consultation. 
When you make a firework injury claim with MG Legal, you are entitled to make a claim for two different types of compensation that relate to your injury. 
The first of these, known as special damages, will be calculated on an individual basis, based on how much your injuries have impacted your daily life, ability to work, and any extra costs they have caused you. Special damages are usually things like lost earnings, medical expenses, travel expenses, and so forth; or in more serious claims for personal injury compensation, they can be claimed for future loss of earnings, loss of congenial employment, or even for round the clock care.  
The other part of your firework injury claim, known as general damages, is compensation for the pain and suffering that your injuries have caused. This head of damages relates to your personal injury claim, and we will seek a report from the best experts in their field to ensure that no stone is left unturned, in our journey to obtaining you, our injured client, the injury compensation you deserve.  
When you choose to work with MG Legal, and we accept your NO WIN NO FEE firework injury claim, you will be assigned a designated personal injury solicitor to act on your behalf, who will go above and beyond to accurately calculate the value of your claim, and win the maximum amount of financial compensation for you. 
The special damages included in your claim, as discussed above, will be worked out on an individual basis, by your designated solicitor. In terms of general damages, these are calculated using the relevant guidelines, and are based on the type and severity of your injuries. Our personal injury solicitors have put together the following table using common firework related injuries: 
Firework Injury: 
Potential compensation: 
Facial scarring- where the disfigurement is substantial and there is a significant psychological reaction 
£16,860 to £45,440 
Less significant scarring- where there is but one scar that can be camouflaged and covered up 
£3,710 to £12,900 
A single noticeable scar, or several superficial scars. 
£2,220 to £7,350 
Severe prolonged pain- where symptoms persist after treatment period, and affect a patient's ability to work. 
£39,530 to £59,110 
Moderate pain disorder- ranging from cases where symptoms are ongoing but to a lesser degree than above, to where a recovery, or near recovery, is made up to a few years after. 
£19,770 to £36,120 
More minor injuries where a full recovery is able to be made within three months. 
£1,290 to £2,300 
Minor injuries in which a full recovery is possible within 28 days. 
£650 to £1,290 
In our previous blog on firework safety, our personal injury solicitors discussed the fact that fireworks can burn at up to 2000 degrees celsius, and travel at speeds of up to 150mph. This makes it possible for them to cause serious injuries, and even be fatal. 
Some of the most common causes of firework injuries include: 
Incorrect setup and letting off of fireworks 
Failing to leave enough space between yourself and fireworks 
Children using sparklers without proper protection and supervision 
Event organisers throwing unused fireworks on the bonfire 
The general rule for personal injury claims established the 1980 Limitation Act, is that you will have 3 years from the date of which your firework injury occurs to claim for financial compensation. 
There are exceptions to this three-year time limit to make a firework injury claim. These are: 
Claiming for someone with lack of mental capacity- if a loved one lacks the mental capacity to make a claim on their own behalf, there is no time limit for how long you have to make a claim on their behalf 
Making a claim for a child- you can make a firework injury claim for your injured child at any point until they turn 18. At this point they have 3 years to do so on their own behalf 
To learn more about the time limits involved, contact our specialist solicitors online here and speak to a solicitor on a free, no-obligation basis within one working hour.
