In 2009, there were over 350,000 house fires across the United States, injuring 12,600 and killing 2,480 people. One device that is tremendously helpful in limiting fatalities is a smoke alarm. Since they were first introduced roughly 40 years ago, smoke alarms have been one of the most important pieces of technology in keeping people safe if their home catches on fire. Property owners are responsible for installing working fire alarms in their homes or properties and if they do not, they may be found to be legally liable for harm that befalls guests as a result. One of the most devastating consequences of a fire is smoke inhalation, which can cause severe illness or even death.
If you or someone you know has suffered serious injuries from smoke inhalation because of someone else’s negligence, you may be eligible for financial compensation.
