House Fires in New Jersey
Fires break out weekly in the state of New Jersey in both residential and commercial areas. In just 2015 alone, it was reported that approximately 77 individuals were killed in fires within the state of New Jersey. The truth is, many residential fires can be prevented when precautions are taken. These fires break out due to many different reasons, but some of the most common include:
- Faulty electrical issues in homes
- Flammable items or furniture
- Defective appliances
- Faulty smoke detectors
- Home violations
If you have been hurt in a life-altering fire caused by another party, you may wonder where you can turn. It is imperative that you have the assistance of an attorney on your side who has handled claims like yours in the past.
When fires break out, they tend to spread incredibly quickly. This can cause extensive damages, as well as serious injuries to those involved. In fact, burn injuries and smoke inhalation injuries can happen within seconds to those inside a burning home. On top of this, many lives are taken each year due to serious fires. A major determination in a claim is to find out what caused the fire to spread so quickly after it broke out. If you have been hurt in a fire, it is crucial that you speak with an experienced Trenton personal injury lawyer.
