Fires on Another Person’s Property
Many fire injuries occur on another person’s property, whether at a large public event or a private residence. In many cases, fires lead to significant injuries, resulting in not only physical pain but financial obligations as well. The attorneys at Crowe & Harris, LLP , understand the financial burden a fire injury can cause you and your family. If you have suffered an injury on someone else’s property, however, you may be eligible to pursue remunerations for any damages sustained.
Causes of Fire-Related Injuries
There are many negligent behaviors a property owner can commit that may cause a fire or make the occurrence of one far more dangerous. Some of these actions are:
- Failure to have / maintain fire exits
- Failure to have / maintain extinguishers or sprinklers
- Failure to have / maintain smoke detectors
- Failure to quarantine flammable substances
All of these forms of negligence could mean serious injury in the event of a fire. If a property owner failed to take action to prevent fires or fire-related injury on his or her property, then that property owner may be held accountable.
