What can help in proving Fourth of July injuries

The Fourth of July weekend was an epic celebration of civic pride and patriotism where scores of people enjoyed fireworks displays and individual shows at residential homes. While most went off without a hitch, some people were injured. They ranged from minor injuries to severe ones. Also, there were also reports of homes being damaged because of fireworks being set off. 

When these things happen, it is important for accident victims to understand that they have rights. If a homeowner failed to use reasonable care while setting off fireworks and a guest was injured because of such a failure, the homeowner could be held liable for the guest’s injuries. This means that the guest could seek compensation for their injuries.

While this is the basic concept behind negligence cases, proving negligence is not always simple. The following information could be helpful in proving your case should a lawsuit be needed to assert your rights. 

Witness statements – It is helpful to know what other people saw and what may have caused the accident. This could help bolster your version of the events that led to your injury.

Cell phone video – Nowadays, so many events are captured on cell phone cameras to be uploaded to YouTube or Facebook. The same could be used to help tell the story about how you were injured.

Medical reports – While these reports may not be able to show who may have been at fault, they could be instructive in highlighting the extent of your injuries.

If you have additional questions about your right to compensation after a fireworks injury, an experienced personal injury attorney can help.
