About Residential Fires

A home fire is a terrible tragedy that can cause irredeemable physical and emotional damage. Unfortunately they are a common occurrence not only in Connecticut, but across the United States as well. The effects of a residential fire or apartment fire can include death, burn injuries, and loss of family heirlooms. Far too often these fires occurred as a result of someone else’s negligence.

If you or a loved one is suffering from the effects of a Connecticut fire, contact us today for a free consultation with a proven fire lawyer.

Home Fire Facts

Apartment building fires, residential fires and burn injuries are more prevalent than most people think. There are, on average, 500,000 structural fires a year in the United States. These fires result in almost 3,000 deaths, 15,000 injuries, and over $10 billion in direct property damage a year.

Unfortunately, the bulk of the structural fires happen to homes. There are, on average, almost 400,000 home fires a year in the United States. These fires resulted in 2,700 deaths, 13,500 injuries, and almost $8 billion in property damage.

Although these statistics are far from reassuring, they show that if you’ve experienced a Connecticut fire, you are not alone. The Law Offices of John J. LaCava, LLC, is dedicated to helping people in Fairfield County recover compensation after a home fire or apartment building fire has left them injured or suffering from the death of a loved one.

There are laws and fire codes in Connecticut that require an owner or landlord to maintain their property in a safe manner, making sure that there are safe exits, smoke alarms and protected enclosures.

Dedicated And Proven Experience

Even though many of these residential home or apartment fires are a result of someone’s negligence, insurance companies will try to diminish or reject claims for property damage and medical bills that result from a Connecticut fire. The right fire lawyer can help you get you compensation not only for property loss, but also for medical bills and lost wages if you have been injured as the result of negligence. Although the emotional damages that result from these home or apartment fires can never be healed, an experienced fire attorney will fight to make sure you get what you deserve in court.
