Explosions And Chemical Burn Injuries Can Require Surgery And Extended Hospital Stays
Lack of fire protection devices, children left unattended or a landlord who failed to install smoke detectors are common causes of injuries resulting from fires. Additionally, people can be burned in motor vehicle accidents, work accidents or even an accident at work.
If you have been burned due to someone else’s negligence or if someone you love suffered a wrongful death in a fire or explosion, please contact a fire and burn injury lawyer at Greene Ketchum to discuss whether you may be able to collect financial compensation for your injury, pain and suffering, medical bills, and continuing medical treatment. You will pay no attorney’s fees unless we win compensation for you.

Holding Negligent Property Owners Liable For Fires
Even if an apartment building or retail store is “up to code,” other factors may be involved which create liability for owners. If an apartment owner knew there were problems with systems in the building and failed to do anything about them, the foreseeability of a fire and his decision to ignore that danger could constitute a violation of what was reasonable.
