Apartment Fires and House Fires
Owners of common living spaces like apartment buildings or a rented house have a legal and moral responsibility to ensure their tenants are safe. They should be following state guidelines and implementing protocols that prevent personal injury and property damage. They should have as many safety measures in place as possible and required by law.
If you are victim to a fire, scalded by a faulty sink or tub, explosion or suffer burns, you probably have a case against your landlord. Electrical accidents, defective smoke alarms, wrongful death and more can all fall under the purview of a landlord’s responsibility if their negligence or failure to act caused the fire or accident. You may have a case against a manufacturer, retailer or product distributor if the accident was through an appliance.
