Fire Related Injury Lawyer Los Angeles
Nothing compares to excruciating pains stemming from burns. Explosions, structure fires, even gas tanks bursting into flames often disfigure victims, requiring skin grafting and similar treatments to restore appearance back to semi-normal conditions.
Compass Law Group, PC approaches fire-related accidents with care and caution, knowing the last thing burn victims need is mounting stress of answering questions or medical bills which spiral out of control.
From something simple as carelessness with cigarettes to machines igniting flammable materials, fires are unique in how and why they formed. Each incident takes an aggressive approach in gather facts, too, because many witnesses can be unreachable beyond the first day following the fire.
Across the United States in 2015, 1.34 million fires were reported to the USFA (U.S. Fire Administration). Of all reported nonresidential fires, 29.5% were cooking related incidents with only 10.4% deemed unintentionally set or carelessly set. But cooking fires and those caused by human negligence aren’t the only ones which caused injury.
20.9% of vehicle fires stem from equipment failures, while 43.1% of outside fires were caused unintentionally. All told, 22.9% of all fires were non-residential, otherwise classified as business or uninhabitable.
Most common reasons non-residential fires occur include:
- Landlords haven’t updated wiring to conform with local code, and an unexpected surge causes a structural fire.
- Grease fires in restaurants without proper extinguishing materials like Ansul.
- Manufacturers who accident mix chemicals that, when put in contact with each other, explode.
- Faulty vehicle components which cause an unexpected explosion.
