Household fires are the leading cause of burn injuries and fire-related deaths in Maryland. Many of those fires are the result of defective products and could have been prevented. Two common defective products are faulty wiring and defective electrical systems, which account for approximately 50,000 household fires each year in the United States. If you or a loved one have suffered a burn injury in a household fire, it may have been caused by:
- Defective Lighting Products;
- Defective Furnaces;
- Defective Panel Boxes;
- Defective Circuits;
- Defective Receptacle Outlets;
- Defective Cords and Plugs;
- Defective Outlets; and/or
- Defective Transformers.
Burn injuries from any of the above defective products could be due to faulty design, defective parts, negligent manufacturing processes, negligent distribution, or improper installation. Though Maryland law will hold liable the person or entity responsible for your injury, it can be difficult to determine who that person or entity is.
A skilled burn injury attorney can review the facts of your case, investigate the potential causes, and determine which party should be held responsible. If you’ve been injured in a household fire caused by defective wiring or defective electrical systems, you are likely suffering extreme physical discomfort or pain and emotional trauma. You may be permanently disfigured or disabled, or you may face a very long rehabilitation process. In the case of someone else’s negligence, you are entitled to receive compensation for your injuries and reimbursement for your medical bills and lost wages. Remember: You don’t have to suffer through your injury alone – we can help.
