Here are 5 Steps to Take After a Fire or Explosion Injury.

What Are the Common Causes of a fire or explosion?

Fire hazards are very common in the home, outdoors and in the workplace but we rarely notice hazardous conditions until something goes wrong. Determining the cause of a fire or explosion requires extensive experience and thorough investigation involving engineering, electrical, and gas line experts as well as fire scene experts.

Our law firm has the experience and the resources to effectively prepare and litigate cases on behalf of plaintiffs and family members injured or killed in fires and explosions.

Who Is Responsible for Fire or Explosion Hazards?

At times, someone else’s carelessness can start a fire or worsen one. Faulty electrical wiring and furnaces, gas leaks, and malfunctioning or absent smoke detectors are just a few examples of possible sources of liability for property owners or product manufacturers.

A fire loss attorney can help you understand how a fire or explosion happened and locate the parties responsible for its resulting burn injuries or property damage.

Fire Damage & Burn Injury FAQs

Burn injuries are painful, disfiguring, and require long recovery periods. Smoke inhalation, and inhalation of toxic fumes and gases from flammable fabrics and furniture stuffed with polyurethane foam, can create long term injuries and increase the likelihood of death.

If you or someone you love has been affected by an explosion or a fire, you may be entitled to compensation. You and your family should not be made to suffer unduly because someone else failed to act responsibly.

Unlike property owners and homeowners, individuals who rent property will also have to work with a landlord or owner. If an investigation finds that your landlord could have prevented the fire or knew there was a risk of fire and did not resolve the hazard, you may be eligible for compensation.

You should contact a fire damage lawyer immediately if you believe your landlord’s negligence played a role in a fire or explosion. Examples of negligence include:

  • Faulty wiring due to old wiring, amateur installation, pests or overloaded circuits
  • Instances where the number of occupants in the whole building or single unit exceeds the capacity of the space (overcrowding)
  • Building code violations, amateur construction, make-shift construction
  • Lack of smoke detectors, aged smoke detectors, broken smoke detectors
  • Lack of extinguishers or expired/faulty extinguishers
  • Defective fire alarms
  • Faulty equipment, like boilers or heaters
  • Blocked fire exits or disregard for fire doors

Traditionally, families and businesses would rely on insurance and even purchase protection from credit card companies. However, valid insurance claims are often denied, delayed, or devalued. Furthermore, if the fire or explosion was caused by negligence then a lawsuit or settlement could be an appropriate course of action.

If you are struggling to make ends meet and cannot pay all of your regular bills, notify the creditor right away. They may extend the deadline or offer flexibility during emergencies, so you won’t be penalized for a missed payment.

As you recuperate and rebuild, keep copies of your receipts. These could be related to your medical treatments or expenses related to your evacuation, like lodging or repairs.

You can also contact relief agencies, like the Red Cross, to assist you immediately after a fire or explosion by providing various degrees of food, water, and shelter.
