Happy Fourth of July weekend. For Americans, the Fourth of July means celebrating with BBQ, fireworks, friends and family. But being safe is important as well.
As the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reports, in 2014 there were 11 deaths and more than 10,000 injuries from fireworks that resulted in an ER visit.
Not only is your physical health at risk, but your financial health may also be at risk. The Connecticut Post reports that:
fireworks affect two different policies – your homeowner’s insurance policy and your health insurance policy. Injuries to yourself or your family are going to be covered by your health care policy. Damages to property and injuries to others will be covered under separate sections of your homeowner’s policy.
This weekend, have fun and be safe.
