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.

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 rental properties, even though
Indiana, Kentucky, and Illinois each have laws that require landlords to equip rental units with working smoke detectors.
