Rushville burn injury attorneys for electrical fires

Lawyers for Fires, Burn Injuries, and Electrocutions in Decatur, Springfield, Champaign, and Peoria

There are many different hazards that you face in your everyday life, whether you are at home, at work, in a store, or at someone else's residence. While you take precautions to protect your safety whenever possible, there are some cases where hazards are unavoidable, and they may not even become known until they cause a serious personal injury. Electrical fires often fall into this category, since faulty wiring in a building, vehicle, or appliance may not become known until it catches on fire. If you have been injured by this type of hazard, you will want to consult with a premises liability lawyer to learn about your options for pursuing compensation for your injuries.

The attorneys of Kanoski Bresney have been providing legal help to injury victims for more than 40 years, and we understand the legal issues that affect cases involving electrical fires. We will help you take the right steps to identify the party or parties who were responsible for your injuries and hold them liable for your damages. With over $400 million recovered for our clients, we have the knowledge and experience needed to make sure you are fully compensated for your injuries.

Liability for Electrical Fires and Injuries

Problems with wiring in a home or business can lead to fires that may cause serious injuries due to burns and smoke inhalation, as well as extensive property damage. These fires can occur because outlets or light fixtures were not wired properly, because the wiring in a building had not been maintained and kept up to code, or because of the improper use of devices such as space heaters. Faulty wiring in appliances or tools can also cause fires, or users of these products may suffer electrocution injuries.

There are multiple parties who may be liable for injuries in electrical fires, including:

  • The owner of a commercial property such as a mall or restaurant may be responsible for injuries to customers or employees due to fires that occurred because of failure to keep a building's wiring up to code.
  • A homeowner may be liable for injuries to guests that occurred because of the use of electrical devices with frayed cords or other hazards that led to fires or electrocution.
  • Tenants may be able to hold a landlord responsible for injuries and property damage in electrical fires that took place because repairs to the property were not performed properly.
  • A contractor or tradesman may be liable for fires that occurred due to incorrect electrical wiring or because of improperly installed devices such as washers, dryers, refrigerators, ovens, dishwashers, furnaces, hot water heaters, or air conditioners.
  • Manufacturers may be responsible for electrical fires or electrocutions that occurred because of faulty wiring in defective products, including tools and equipment, computers or other electronic devices, appliances, children's toys, or other electrical devices.
