Risks of Strobe Lights

Many people consider strobe lights a fun addition to any party or event. Rapidly blinking lights can create entertaining illusions, such as slow or robotic movements. Unfortunately, although strobe lights are fun, they can also be dangerous for some individuals. For certain people with epilepsy, strobe lights can trigger seizures.

If you or someone you know has been injured because they were not adequately warned about strobe lights, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your losses.

Strobe Lights and Epilepsy

For individuals who have photosensitive epilepsy, flashing lights, rapidly moving patterns, or other visual stimuli may provoke a sudden seizure. Emergency ambulance lights, strobe lights, and certain cartoons are just a few examples of triggers for photosensitive epileptics.

When hosting an event or party, you should always warn the audience if flashing lights or rapidly moving pictures will be used. With proper warning, sensitive individuals may remove themselves from the room to prevent injury.

If provoked, an epileptic may suffer from a sudden seizure that causes them to lose consciousness and control of their body. During a seizure, it is not uncommon for a person’s muscles to lock up and shake. If you witness a seizure, call 9-1-1 immediately. Try to prevent the seizing individual from encountering hard objects, especially with their head, until emergency services arrive.
