Apartment fires: Who pays?

Apartment fires are devastating events that often result in serious injuries or death. In the aftermath of a fire, many families are left in limbo with no place to live and no one to help them deal with their devastating losses.

Landlords often blame fires on renters, but in many cases, negligence on the part of the landlord contributed to the fire or to injuries suffered in the fire. If the landlord was negligent, you may be entitled to seek compensation for everything you have lost.

An investigation of an apartment fire is a search for the truth. Often, these investigations reveal unsafe conditions the landlord should have known about and corrected. Here are some examples of landlord negligence that can lead to apartment fires:

  • Missing smoke alarms
  • Sprinkler systems that don't work
  • Code violations in wiring
  • Defective furnaces or other appliances
  • Blocked exits or fire escapes
  • Improperly storage of flammable materials or chemicals

If you are injured or lose a loved one due to the negligence of a landlord or building manager, you are entitle to compensation for economic losses, pain and suffering, and other losses. This area of law is known as premises liability. An experienced attorney can work with experts to collect and preserve evidence of landlord negligence.
