Those who have suffered severe burn injuries know that burns can be more than skin-deep. Third and fourth-degree burns severely damage underlying tissues beneath the skin and can lead to disfigurement. Additionally, smoke inhalation during a fire can lead to serious bronchial problems. Sadly, those most vulnerable to suffering injury or death in a fire are children younger than 5 years old and adults over 65 years old. Many times the costs of medical bills and the toll of mental anguish can pile up causing further problems.

Fires can occur for several reasons many in your house or in on the job that may include items containing defects and improperly maintained property. When a household item or an item used on the job contains defects that caused a fire to break out or if the fire was caused by carelessness of workers that maintain the work site, the company that produces the item or the worker that is responsible for making sure everything is in working order, can be accountable for the injury you or someone you care about received. This means they are accountable for not only the visible injury but also any mental or emotional injury and any damage done to your house or place of business.
