In the United States, more than 350,000 residential fires occur each year, which can result in the loss of property, belongings, and even lives. Burn injuries are excruciating and can cause disfigurement. Physical recovery can be a long and painful process, and emotional recovery may never be fully realized.

The time to file an injury claim needs to be preserved, many times even before treatment is complete. Unfortunately, residential fires often result in fatalities, and the states of Indiana and Kentucky have a higher-than-average rate of fire deaths based on population. Navigating a fire injury or fire death alone is overwhelming and confusing you need a fire injury attorney.

To avoid fire injuries, our attorneys recommend learning about the causes behind most fire injuries and deaths. That way, you can prepare for and hopefully prevent a tragedy. There are many common causes of fires, including faulty electrical wiring, defective furnaces, gas leaks, cell phone and laptop chargers, dryer vents, and improperly cleaned fireplaces can also be causes of fires.

Escape is the primary issue during a fire, which is why residences should have adequate escape routes. Working smoke detectors are vital and can save lives. Shockingly, smoke detectors are still not installed in all rental properties, even though Indiana, Kentucky, and Illinois each have laws that require landlords to equip rental units with working smoke detectors.

What to do if you or your family have been involved in a fire

When it comes to fire injuries, time is of the essence, which is why it's crucial to contact an injury lawyer quickly. What can you do in the meantime? Make sure you...

  • Gather information while at the fire scene, if it can be done safely. Make notes of what witnesses say. Get names, addresses, and phone numbers of all witnesses.
  • Do not give a statement to any insurance company until you have spoken to the fire injury attorneys at Robert John & Associates.
  • Do not sign anything from the insurance companies. Fire victims may be giving up rights to pursue a claim for future compensation by signing documents from insurance companies.

  • Inform your own insurance company of the fire as soon as you are able.
