Fire & Burn Injury

A fire injury or a burn injury can cause great physical suffering and emotional pain. Although many people cannot imagine ever becoming a fire or burn injury victim, many burn injuries and deaths caused by fires take place in the United States every year.

Statistics show that at least one fire department will respond to a fire call every 19 seconds somewhere in the United States. Adults age 65 and older as well as children younger than 5 are the ones most likely to suffer serious burn injuries or die in fires.

Improperly maintained property and defective products are two common causes of fires. Fires can lead to serious burn injuries as well as the loss of irreplaceable personal, residential, or commercial property. Burn injuries can be excruciatingly painful and can cause disfigurement and even death. The United States is the number one country in the developed world with the highest number of fire-related fatalities.

If you sustained a burn injury because a property owner did not properly maintain his or her property or a manufacturer produced a defective or dangerous product, the negligent party could be held liable for your injuries.
