Every year, fire departments across the country receive reports of approximately 354,000 residential structure fires. In less than 30 seconds, a small flame can erupt into a massive inferno. Cooking, heating equipment, and electrical failure are the leading causes of apartment fires. An experienced attorney can help you fight for recovery after being injured in a fire.
You must show that another party's negligence was a direct cause of your injuries in order to be eligible for compensation after an accident. This can be difficult to do on your own.
