The Fourth of July weekend has come and gone. Plenty of people enjoyed heaping plates of potato salad, hamburgers and hot dogs. People of all ages jumped off docks and into their local lake or pool. Families came together, friends enjoyed each other's company, and the whole weekend was drenched in a fun-loving atmosphere.
The cherry on top of this proverbial sundae is the fireworks. Every Fourth of July, there are thousands upon thousands of firework shows across the country. Many more shows are done by individuals who put on a display for the neighborhood -- and this is where the trouble sets in. Without fail, many people lose limbs, suffer terrible injuries, and even die every year because of fireworks.
