WHO IS LIABLE IN A FIRE CASE?
Since there are different ways a fire can begin, many parties could be accountable in a fire case. A utility company might have negligently maintained their equipment, causing their power lines to spark or ignite plants or buildings. A defective smoke detector might have prevented a victim from extinguishing a fire in time to prevent injuries and property damage. A contractor may have failed to wire a property properly causing a fire to start from old materials in the walls. Or a landlord may have allowed dangerous conditions to exist that eventually caused a fire to start.
We will examine the details of your case to pinpoint how the fire started and who may have contributed to it.
