Residential Fires in Mississippi

, New Albany, MS - Firefighters Hospitalized With Heat-Related Issues After Residential Fire on Adams St, Germany Law Firm PLLC

Every year, thousands of Mississippi residents are severely injured or killed in residential fires throughout the state.   

Multiple factors can result in injuries and deaths in residential fires. The most common types of negligence that cause residential fires are: 

  • A contractor’s or subcontractor’s code violations
  • Defective fire suppression equipment
  • Inferior flame-retardant materials 
  • Broken or faulty smoke detectors
  • Defective or old electrical wiring.   

The most common injuries caused by residential fires include health issues due to smoke inhalation, first, second, and third-degree burns, and even death.

Victims who survive their fire-related injuries must find a way to deal with long hospitalizations and will be incapable of returning to work for a significant amount of time, which will negatively affect every area of their lives.
