Daughter Injured By Fireworks

My daughter was injured in a fireworks show put on by our neighbors last night.  What responsibility does the neighbor have to pay her medical bills and other losses? 

Your neighbor’s responsibility depends on whether or not he was negligent in his use of the fireworks.  Your neighbor had the duty to exercise reasonable care while using the fireworks and, indeed, an argument can be made in the law that he had the duty to use the highest degree of care because fireworks are so dangerous.

So, before I can tell you want responsibility your neighbor has, if any, I need to know a whole lot more about how the injury occurred.  I also would need to know the age of your daughter and what she was doing at the time the injury occurred. 

A careful investigation by an experienced personal injury lawyer will determine whether your neighbor is liable for the injuries to your daughter.
