Burn injuries at a firework display could be caused by the negligence of the event holders, and if this is the case, you could be entitled to forego a claim for compensation. Examples of professional negligence at a firework display include:
- Not providing a sufficient amount of stewards to manage the crowds
- Stewards not being dressed in easily visible and segregating clothing.
- Failing to keep spectators away from areas such as firing and fall out zones.
- Failing to control the crowd and prevent it from overcrowding
- Allowing spectators to bring their own fireworks
- Selling fireworks on the site
- Failing to start on time, and/or failing to inform spectators of any delays.
Fireworks and sparklers are not the only sources of burn injuries though. Many burn injuries are caused by fire, hot water, chemicals electricity etc.
Occupations such as gardeners, cleaners, electricians, plumbers, factory workers etc all work in high risk environments that burn injuries could occur in. It is your employer’s duty of care to ensure that there are minimum hazards in place to prevent burn injuries from being obtained in the workplace’s premises. Therefore, if a burn injury has occurred in the workplace due to your employer’s negligence, then you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
