Traffic laws, safety regulations, and other rules to follow are there to keep people safe. Unfortunately, there are those who disregard those rules, and when they do, people get hurt. It may result in no more than a dented car, but these incidents can also cause injury and death. Repair costs and medical bills should not be the responsibility of the injured party, if the accident was caused by another. In such cases, legal compensation is not only fair, it’s a necessity.
Fire Rescue in North Catawba were called to a residence on Doyle Drive on July 4th.
A 52-year-old man was seriously injured when a mortar-style firework exploded, according to a Fire-Rescue captain.
The patient had to be flown by helicopter, because his injuries were severe. The captain believes he may have been taken to the Burn Center at North Carolina Baptist Hospital.
The captain also stated that the firework that caused the injury was illegal to use in North Carolina. He also encouraged everyone to leave fireworks to professionals and to attend a fireworks show, not light them in their backyards.
