Fireworks and traffic accidents

Over Memorial Day weekend, some people celebrated the holiday by getting together with family members, barbecuing and lighting off fireworks. Firework usage across the country will increase in the coming weeks as many people celebrate the Fourth of July. Fireworks, both those that are used legally and illegally, can present a number of dangers. In some instances, a firework may even lead to a traffic collision and there are a number of risk factors for drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists to be aware of during these holidays.

For starters, a firework may cause a driver to become startled behind the wheel, which could cause them to hit another vehicle or swerve off the road. This is certainly not the only way in which firework activity could cause an accident, however. Some people may not be paying attention to the road while they are lighting fireworks, which can be especially dangerous at night and may result in a pedestrian accident. Moreover, a driver may even be hit by firework debris while they are on the road.

If you are involved in an accident that may have been caused by fireworks, whether you were going for a walk or riding in a vehicle, it is important to examine your legal options afterward. If someone else’s careless behavior caused the accident, you may be able to move ahead with a lawsuit. Moreover, you should exhibit caution when driving over the Fourth of July, since there are many other potential hazards on the road to watch out for.
