Apartment and House Fires
Every year in the United States, thousands of people are injured or killed in apartment and home fires. When a fire occurs, the cause of the fire may require extensive investigation by fire experts and lawyers to find the cause. Some of the questions following an apartment or home fire may include:
- Did the landlord provide adequate alarm systems?
- Did the landlord fail to make upgrades to its fire safety system when required by law?
- Did the landlord fail to adequately maintain alarm systems?
- Did the landlord follow fire safety codes?
- Did the landlord fail to properly maintain an electrical system leading to a fire?
- Did the landlord fail to provide a fire suppression system when required by law?
- Did the landlord comply with city, county, state, and federal law regarding fire safety?
- Was there a safe exit for each apartment unit?
- Did an unsafe product cause the fire?
- Did a contractor or construction company cause the fire?
- Did an adjacent property owner or business cause the fire?
- Was the building adequately constructed to prevent the spread of fire from one unit to another?
- What could have been done to prevent the fire?
