Fires in an Apartment Building

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) informs that over 100,000 fires breakout across the nation every year, with apartment building fires accounting for most of them and the main reasons being:

  • Negligence in the kitchen while cooking
  • Gas heaters and leaks
  • Electrical fires from faulty wiring
  • Smoking
  • Arson

In the event of a fire in an apartment building, it is recommendable to notify the police immediately. Secondly, stay clear of the kitchen, which is where most fires start. Try to stay as close to the ground as possible and carefully move towards the nearest exit. Do not open any doors if the knobs are hot. If unable to exit the apartment, remain still and wait for firefighters. Apartment buildings should possess fire alarms that are regularly inspected to make sure they work, as well as working fire extinguishers, emergency lighting, emergency evacuation map, and landlords are obliged to make sure the property they rent has no gas leaks or electrical short-circuits that could cause a fire.

Can a Landlord be held liable for Personal Injuries or Losses from an Apartment fire?

Landlords are legally compelled to guarantee hazard-free living conditions for their tenants. This includes:

  • Fire exits and evacuation plans amply posted and easily visible
  • Fire safety equipment such as fire alarms and extinguishers
  • Proper emergency lighting
  • Safe gas connections and regular inspection/maintenance
  • Safe electrical installations
  • Carry Fire Insurance to cover injuries, damages, or losses to third party victims

If you, a friend, or relative was the victim of negligence by a landlord following an apartment building fire, contact the Perazzo Law Firm ONLINE for a FREE initial consultation.

Hotel Fire Accident Lawyer in Miami

Over 3,500 hotel and motel fires occur yearly across America, with smoking being the most common cause all hotel fires. However, poor maintenance of electrical appliances and installations rank just as high. Through vicarious liability, hotels are bound by law to be readily equipped and uphold all fire prevention regulation. Thus, a hotel operator may be held liable if negligence is determined to be the cause of the fire which led to injuries and losses suffered by hotel guests. Though most hotel accidents involve slip and fall situations suffered by guests, a fire in a hotel can be extremely traumatic and potentially deadly when there is no fire prevention or safety plan in place in the event of a fire in a hotel.

In Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm recommends contacting our Miami office for a FREE initial consultation if you, a friend, or relative suffered bodily harm or losses in a hotel fire that could have been prevented by the hotel operator. Our personal injury staff reminds fire accident victims that burns are considered permanent injuries and can have a traumatic, life altering change on the quality of the fire accident victim's life.

Restaurant Fire Accident Lawyer

The cooking area in a restaurant is a common place for fires when there is a lot of cooking and food prep activity taking place. Boiling water, frying a steak, oven on full blast, and open flames near flammable substances have the potential to cause a fire in a kitchen. Faulty wiring and negligence can also lead to a fire breaking out in a restaurant kitchen. Fortunately, restaurant owners and operators carry fire insurance to cover premises liability lawsuits in the event of injuries suffered by diners and staff members in a fire.

Following a restaurant accident that ends in injury, losses, or wrongful death, the service of a dedicated personal injury lawyer are strongly recommended. Contact the Perazzo Law Firm ONLINE now to find out about a possible insurance claim for compensation to cover losses.
