Our Skilled Attorney Can Protect Your Rights
Attorney John J. LaCava is an active member of the Weston Volunteer Fire Department as well as a state certified firefighter (Firefighter I). It is critical to your claim that your attorney and a team of fire and safety experts promptly investigates the fire to pinpoint the cause.
Our law firm has significant knowledge of burn injuries and fire code violations. Landlords, as well as property builders, must comply with the Connecticut State Fire Safety Code (CSFSC). When they do not, fires can start and spread more rapidly than if the codes were followed. For example, the following items can help retard the rate of the fire or spread of smoke:
- Location and type of smoke detectors and smoke alarms
- Specific requirements for exits, stairs, sprinkler systems and smoke barriers
- Fire doors and self-closing doors
If any of these safety measures are not taken, the fire and smoke from an electrical fire or other type of fire can spread rapidly, resulting in serious injury and death. Our law firm can fully investigate if an unsafe apartment building could have been prevented by a property owner or builder.
