Wausau Fire Injury Attorneys
Every year, fires cause millions of dollars in damage to buildings and thousands of injuries to people. These destructive forces are sometimes unavoidable and are often caused by unexpected circumstances. In many cases, however, the fire could have been prevented if not for a property owner’s negligence. Unfortunately, property owners, who are entrusted with the responsibility of keeping their premises safe from fire hazards, do not always live up to this responsibility, resulting in harm befalling innocent victims.
Property owners are responsible for the safety of their premises. Thus, if you or a loved one was injured in a fire due to a property owner’s negligence, contact our Wausau fire injury attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. at 800-242-2874 to speak with a compassionate attorney about how we may be able to help you seek compensation for your losses.
To avoid the outbreak of a fire and ensure that people can get to a safe place in the event of a fire, property owners are obligated to take certain precautions. Neglecting to take these precautions could result in life-altering repercussions for those affected. Regrettably, property owners are often negligent, causing fires and injuries in the following ways:
Failure to provide smoke detectors
- Failure to provide fire extinguishers
- Failure to provide fire escape routes
- Blocking fire escape routes
- Failure to repair fire hazards, such as malfunctioning water heaters and exposed wiring
- Allowing grease to build up on stoves, causing grease fires
- Violating fire codes
If you were injured in a fire due to any of these or other situations in which you believe the property owner is to blame, an experienced attorney can help you determine your options.
