Independence Day is this weekend and nothing signifies the national birthday celebration more than a fireworks show.

From large scale productions to sparklers in the street, firework season is in full force throughout the country.

Keeping up with all things current, we want to highlight our fireworks content with information on everything from local laws and regulations to blogs on the best way to keep your firework experience safe and enjoyable.

Why is this important to you?

Whether purchasing or just watching, FindLaw's firework content will make sure you cover all your bases to make the most of our annual fireworks season. The aesthetic and entertainment value of the bright lights of any type of firework should be approached with caution as there are some serious dangers to using this class of pyrotechnics.

We've got helpful content, including: state-by-state fireworks laws.

But our most helpful content may well be our information on firework injuries and your legal rights around these injuries.

Fireworks cause serious injuries to thousands of people each year. They can kill people who light them, as well as bystanders. In fact, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that 7,000 people were treated in hospital emergency rooms for fireworks-related injuries in 2008 alone. The majority of these injuries involved hands, eyes, ears, and legs.

So if you are thinking about using fireworks this Fourth of July (provided they are legal where you live), make sure you check out all the content we are rolling out on the topic in the coming months. Have a safe and fun Fourth of July everyone!
