Area Where Fatal Fireworks Accident Took Place Was Not Inspected, Lacked Permit | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

New information has come to light regarding the tragic fireworks explosion which killed four people in Ocracoke, North Carolina (N.C.). The site where the fireworks were being unloaded was not properly inspected by the local government and no permit was obtained by the company, Melrose South Pyrotechnics, according to The Virginian-Pilot.

Terry Holland, Lisa Simmons, Charles Kirkland Jr. and Mark Curtis Hill were the employees killed by the explosion. Our deepest condolences go out to their friends and family members.

As an injury attorney with 20 years of experience representing clients in horrific accidents, I recommend a complete investigation of Melrose South Pyrotechnics and potential legal action.

Our firm has written about this tragic incident and the pattern of irresponsibility surrounding this company in previous horrendous incidences involving their employees.

Clearly, the company’s policies and practices show a lack of regard for the safety of their employees and the citizens in areas where their fireworks are stored and unloaded.
