Strong Attorneys For People With Burn Injuries

Safety violations in an apartment building, condominium, multifamily dwelling or hotel can destroy lives. In the best of circumstances, electrical fires, stove fires or furnace fires are dangerous. However, when safety code violations prevent occupants from escaping in a timely fashion, these dangerous situations turn life-threatening, leading to serious burn injuries — even fatalities.

If you or a loved one suffered or died in a fire, the Law Offices of John J. LaCava, LLC, in Stamford, can help you find answers. To discuss your situation with an attorney in a free consultation, call 203-883-9685 or 888-522-2821.

What Type Of Burn Injury Did You Suffer?

Whether the fire occurred in a public or private dwelling such as an apartment building, we are dedicated to investigating the case to find answers for our clients. Negligence of the property owner/landlord, defective construction, or other negligence or defects may be to blame for the ignition of the fire, the speed in which the fire spread, or the inability of occupants to flee the building.

  • Were hallways and stairwells free from obstacles?
  • Were electrical panels fireproofed properly or was there an electrical panel failure?
  • Did smoke alarms or sprinkler systems fail?
  • Was a proper alert system functioning to notify fire officials?
  • Were fire extinguishers positioned according to fire codes?
  • Were there other fire code violations?

The severe burns and smoke inhalation injuries caused by a fire can require extensive medical treatment: skin grafts, burn treatment, physical and occupational therapy and, in many instances, psychiatric therapy. While this treatment is necessary, it is also costly. By pursuing a claim against the property owner, a defective product manufacturer or other responsible parties, we can recover the compensation our clients need for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages related to their injuries.
