For survivors, burn injuries are among the most painful to endure and difficult to recover from. To reduce the risk of fire hazards, a property owner must follow guidelines, which may include:
- Inspecting all electrical work.
- Making sure all escape routes are clear of obstruction.
- Checking that all sprinklers and alarms function.
The property owner has duty of care to provide premises which are "reasonably safe" for guests/visitors/tenants to use. The owner must inspect and repair "common areas" that are under his control. A landlord is liable where "in the exercise of reasonable care, the defendant could have and should have discovered by plain and simple inspection, the condition and risk involved and made the condition safe."
A house fire can wreak havoc on lives, especially when injuries and financial setbacks are the result. Joe understands. Call now.
