Property Owner Liability and Product Defects in Fire-Related Accidents
Retailers, hotels, or apartment managers are liable for burn injuries and deaths that occur due to locked fire exits or building code violations involved in a fire. Sprinkler systems that don’t work, lack of smoke detectors, or an absence of clearly marked fire exits may create additional liability for property owners when it’s clear these dangers were ignored. Similarly, manufacturers can be held liable when there’s clear evidence that a smoke detector failed to work or a sprinkler system malfunctioned.
Working with fire investigators and other experts, our attorneys determine what caused a fire or explosion in order to hold those responsible accountable for our client’s burn injuries.
