Burn Injuries in Athens
Residential fires comprise more than 80% of all fire-related fatalities and injuries in the United States. For the ten-year spread between 1997 and 2007, roughly 3,000 victims died and a further 15,340 sustained injuries caused by structure fires each year.
Myriad factors can cause fatalities and injuries in structure fires, like code violations on the part of a careless contractor, insufficient fire suppression equipment, defective fire-retardant products, faulty smoke detectors, and dated electrical equipment.
Alabama law permits victims to file a claim of wrongful death or personal injury and qualifies them for financial compensation for any deaths or fire-related injuries that were caused by a faulty product or the malfeasance or negligence of another person.
