Most fireworks injuries in 2020 (66%) took place during the month before and after the Fourth of July (June 21-July 21). During this time, burns were the most common type of injury, accounting for 44% of these cases, but people also suffered from contusions (bruises) and lacerations. 30% of injuries affected people’s hands and fingers, while 22% caused harm to the face or ears and 15% affected the eyes. Firecrackers were the most common cause of injuries, accounting for around 1,600 cases, followed by sparklers, which caused around 900 injuries.
