MINNESOTA FIREWORKS LEGAL CLAIMS can be based on simple negligence. Fireworks are clearly and obviously dangerous-and children are the victims in most cases.
Statistics show that approximately 80 people are treated for fireworks related injuries in emergency rooms every year in the Twin Cities metropolitan area. 40% of the injury victims are under the age off 19 and 18% are under the age of 9 years old.
The Minneapolis Injury Lawyers at the Schmidt Salita Law Team have successfully handled injury claims involving fireworks. In fact, senior trial lawyer Douglas Schmidt successfully handled one of Minnesota’s most historic fireworks injury cases, the case of a boy that was injured in perhaps the worst fireworks disaster in the history of the State of Minnesota.
The dangerous and hazardous nature of fireworks requires that they be handled with extreme care. Often, they are considered a playful lark-and not handling with the extreme care that is required.
Injury victims generally can be confident that the negligent handling of fireworks so as to cause injury will generally be covered by the homeowners insurance policy of the family of the person at fault. When the injury occurs as the result of a business or commercial entity, that entity will generally have an insurance policy that will provide liability coverage to the at fault person.
The Schmidt Salita Law Team is prepared to explore all possibilities for the victim of personal injury relating to the use of fireworks to recover fair compensation for fireworks-related injuries.
