Issues in House Fires

In addition to burns to the skin and underlying tissue, house fire survivors may also suffer internal burns from inhalation of smoke and flames. Fire victims may also suffer non-burn injuries, including broken limbs suffered when jumping from upper stories of burning buildings.

House fires, especially in older buildings, are frequently deadly. Remodeling may have resulted in blocked or inadequate exits. Building inspectors may have turned a blind eye to code violations. Our law firm undertakes wrongful death claims against landlords, manufacturers of defective household goods and furniture, city officials, contractors and others who bear responsibility for fatal fires.

Clark, Hunt, Ahern & Embry has helped its burn injury clients recover millions of dollars in compensation for their suffering.
