What Can be the Real Cause of a Fire or Loss?

Batteries, toys, flammable liquids, defective smoke detectors, defective alarm systems, gas explosions, faulty wiring, certain upholstered furniture, negligent contractors or builders, negligent maintenance or service companies, heaters, appliances, water heaters, negligent neighbors and a long list of others.

Depending on the situation, it is possible to take the following parties to court:

  • The propane company (provided that a propane tank explosion caused the fire)
  • An electrician and his or her employer (faulty wiring for example)
  • The gas company (provided that a gas explosion caused the fire)
  • The contractor who built the home
  • The manufacturer who created the defective fire alarm
  • The manufacturer who created flammable furniture
  • The landlord of the building who may not have properly maintained the premises
  • The manufacturer who created a defective appliance (heater, stove, dryer, etc.)
What Started the Fire?

It’s important to know where the fire may have originated to ensure that it cannot happen again. This means visiting the scene with trained experts who will look at a number of different aspects:

  • What was the pattern of damage?
  • What was the arc damage? (The result of a rapid release of energy, possibly because of electrical failure)
  • How did the fire ventilate?
  • What materials burned
  • Was work being performed by an outside contractor or company in the home or in the nearby area?
  • Where is the lowest level of fire damage?
  • Where is the area of the most severe fire damage?

Research and eyewitness testimony will help the experts determine what led to the fire. Every fire is unique, so it is essential to have a qualified professional go through these steps to determine the cause and origin of the fire.

The Carabin Shaw Law Firm understands that once fire victims and their families it is important to continue living after a fire and to get the compensation they need to move on. That is why we fight for those families who experienced a house fire or explosion that leads to property damage, personal injury or loss of life.
