It’s important to begin an investigation into a fire, explosion, or chemical spill as soon as possible after an accident. Not only is it important for collecting physical evidence, but also for collecting eye-witness testimony before people forget important details surrounding an accident.
- Apartment fires
- Car accident fires
- Chemical spills
- Fires in hotels or motels
- Fires in retail stores
- House Fires
- Inhalation (of smoke or fumes during a fire)
- Office building fires
- Ultraviolet (such as tanning beds)
Retailers, hotels, or apartment managers are liable for burn injuries and deaths that occur due to locked fire exists 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.
