Who May Be Liable for a New Year’s Eve Fireworks Accident?

Fireworks are a significant part of ringing in the new year, dazzling spectators with promises of new beginnings. However, fireworks displays may also be dangerous, resulting in physical injuries, medical expenses, and other potential losses. Over 15,000 victims were significantly injured in firework-related accidents in 2020, requiring emergency care.

With our comprehensive approach, we have secured millions for personal injury victims and work directly with you throughout the claims process, so you may obtain a favorable outcome.

Liability in a New Year’s Eve Firework Accident Caused by Negligence

You must prove liability by demonstrating that the responsible party acted with a lack of duty of care if you have been injured in a fireworks accident caused by an individual. Liable parties may include a homeowner, a company, or the city. With the help of an experienced lawyer at the Law Office of Cohen & Jaffe, LLP you must show the following elements of negligence:

  • The at-fault individual owed you a reasonable duty of care: Duty of care is the legal expectation to regard an individual’s safety. For instance, you must follow traffic laws and regulations when driving
  • The at-fault individual violated a lawful duty of care: The at-fault individual disregarded their duty of care and acted carelessly, harming a victim with their direct actions
  • The at-fault individual directly caused your injuries: If the at-fault individual had acted with a reasonable duty of care, you would not have been injured by the fireworks show. Their negligence directly caused your physical injuries and other losses
  • You incurred damages: You incurred economic and non-economic damages, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and other losses

We help demonstrate the elements of negligence by conducting a comprehensive investigation into your fireworks accident, interviewing witnesses, working with field experts, and building a robust case to establish your right to maximum compensation.

At the Law Office of Cohen & Jaffe, LLP we aggressively protect your legal rights and negotiate with insurance adjusters on your behalf so you don’t get taken advantage of during this challenging time. Your well-being and recovery are our top priority after a fireworks accident caused by negligence.

Liability in a New Year’s Eve Firework Accident Caused by a Defective Product

If you were harmed in a New Year’s Eve fireworks accident caused by a defective product, you may pursue a product liability claim. With the help of experienced product liability lawyers at the Law Office of Cohen & Jaffe, LLP we may hold manufacturers accountable for defective design, manufacturing, or marketing.

If you handled the firework as instructed and in a safe manner, or you attended a firework show where firework handlers acted in a safe manner when igniting fireworks, you must prove that the fireworks were defective and the malfunction directly caused your injuries. Liable parties may include the manufacturer, product designers, retailers, or suppliers.
