If someone using fireworks accidentally starts a fire, they may not be able to turn to their insurance company for reimbursement.
What if the fireworks malfunction injuries someone? This also could be covered under a homeowners’ insurance section for medical payments to others. Similarly, liability payments could cover fireworks that accidentally damage someone else’s property.
Consider the consequences before using fireworks.
