Causes of apartment fires, and issues of liability.

When it comes to injuries and deaths caused by an apartment complex fire, the majority of claims revolve around the concept of premises liability. In general, property owners owe a duty to guests and residents to keep them safe from unreasonable harm. If it's determined that the property owner failed in this regard, they may be on the hook for any damages that occurred as a result.

Some of the most common causes of apartment fires injuries include:

  • Poorly maintained electrical equipment.
  • Malfunctioning space heaters or discarded cigarettes.
  • Kitchen grease fires.
  • A faulty smoke detector.
  • Safety code violations.
  • A lack of fire extinguishers.

Your apartment complex is likely insured for such catastrophic events, but this does not mean that the insurance company will play fair or even accept liability. Their focus is on saving the insurance company money, which is done by paying out as little as possible.

Insurance companies have a lot to lose when it comes to these kinds of claims, and you should expect them to deflect blame at every opportunity. In order to have the best chance at a successful outcome, you need someone on your side who's looking out for your best interests.

We're here to help you.

Not only will our law firm handle all communication with the insurance company moving forward, we will investigate the cause of the fire and collect evidence key to proving your case. We will keep you updated throughout the entire process, and we never charge a penny unless and until we put money in your pocket.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an apartment complex fire in Dallas — or anywhere else in Texas — give us a call right now at (214) 617-1886 to discuss your options.
