As parents, we look forward to creating happy summer memories for our children. We watch fireworks displays, host barbecues and take family camping trips, complete with homemade s’mores around the fire. Unfortunately, these enjoyable activities can turn deadly in a moment, especially when fire is involved. Every year, 300 people die and $280 million worth of property is damaged as a result of children playing with fire. Thousands more go to the emergency room each summer for injuries caused by fireworks, campfires and outdoor grills. Here are some fire safety tips to help you and your kids have a safe and enjoyable summer.Do You Have a Case?
The U.S. Fire Administration warns people of all ages against lighting fireworks at home because there is the risk of serious or deadly injuries. However, these fire safety tips may help reduce the risk of accidents for those who choose to use fireworks:
“We urge everyone to take basic fire safety precautions, especially during summer. Even with proper precaution, some accidents can be caused by defective products, such as grills or lighters, or unsafe conditions in a campground,” says Mark Bernstein of The Sam Bernstein Law Firm. “If you or a loved one has been injured in a summer accident, call us immediately. Our experienced lawyers will help you win the compensation you and your family deserve.”
The law is complicated, but finding the right lawyer is simple.
