Stay Safe this Fourth of July

June 6, 2017

Indianapolis Personal Injury Attorney

For most people, the Fourth of July means relaxing with friends and family, barbecue, parades, and attending their local fireworks show. Unfortunately, the very things that make Independence Day enjoyable can also create a very real risk of serious injury. Here are some of the common sources of Fourth of July injuries and what you can do to keep yourself and your family safe.

  • Barbecue Accidents – Many people fire up their barbecue grill on the Fourth of July, cooking various meats and vegetables for themselves and their guests. It is important to keep in mind that grills can get as hot as 500 degrees, and therefore can cause extremely serious burns. If you are planning to grill, make sure to place your grill away from your home or anything that can catch fire. In addition, do not grill while wearing loose-fitting clothing and make sure to have a fire extinguisher handy.
  • Fireworks Accidents – Fireworks are legal in the state of Indiana and are an integral part of many people’s Independence Day celebration. Fireworks are inherently dangerous, so it is important to take steps to reduce the risk of an accident. A few safety tips recommended by the National Council on Fireworks Safety include not drinking when setting off fireworks, wearing safety glasses, never giving fireworks to children, and always having a bucket of water and hose nearby.
  • Swimming Pool Accidents – Spending the Fourth of July in or around a swimming pool is a great way to beat the often triple-digit Indiana July heat. Swimming pool accidents can result in extremely serious injuries, however, including traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), spinal cord injuries, and broken bones. Some of the things you can do make swimming as safe as possible include only visiting pools where a lifeguard is on duty, not mixing swimming and alcohol, and making sure that children are properly supervised.


Accidents can occur even under the best of conditions, and many people who are injured this Fourth of July will experience tremendous personal and financial losses. Fortunately, if your accident was the result of someone else’s negligence, you will likely be able to recover compensation for these losses. As a result, it is important to have your case reviewed by an attorney as soon as you can after an accident.
