Building fires are among the most dangerous hazards that can be caused by negligent maintenance of a premises, and frequently result in serious injuries or even death. While the causes of fires are occasionally beyond the control of the building manager, it is their responsibility to meet and maintain fire safety standards in such a way that occupants will have a reasonable chance of safely evacuating the premises in the event of a fire.
If you or someone you love has suffered fire-related harm that would likely have been avoided if a property owner had fulfilled his or her obligations, you may be able to pursue financial compensation for medical expenses and other damages.
