FIRES AND EXPLOSIONS

Fires and the terrible injuries they cause can often be prevented. If you have been injured in a fire caused by the negligence of a property owner, or the manufacturer of a dangerous product, you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries, medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering. Contact our fire and burn injury attorneys at Martin & Helms P.C., to discuss your claim. We offer a free initial consultation, and charge no attorney’s fee until we recover compensation for you.

Our Huntsville attorneys have successfully obtained compensation for people injured in fires resulting from another person’s carelessness or negligence. Whether the case requires a jury trial or is better addressed through settlement negotiations, our attorneys will take your burn injury case as far as necessary. Some of the fire accidents and their causes we can handle are listed here.

  • Faulty installation of gas appliances
  • Flammable furniture and upholstery
  • Violations of the Alabama Flammable Fabrics Act
  • Mobile home fires
  • Construction defects
  • Inadequate firewalls in apartment complexes
  • Building code violations
  • Defective appliances

Despite fire prevention efforts in Alabama, burn injuries frequently result in death. Even if you survive the fire, you face scarring and other disfigurement, serious infections, and respiratory distress.

WRONGFUL DEATH

Nothing hurts more than the loss of a loved one.  A wrongful death lawsuit cannot bring your loved one back, but it can help get compensation for spouses, children, and loved ones who are left behind and punish and deter the wrongdoer to prevent the same thing from happening to someone else.

Under Alabama law, a Wrongful Death is a death resulting from the fault of another person or company.  Wrongful deaths may occur as a result of any of the following:

  • Car & Truck Accidents
  • Fires & Explosions
  • Defective Products & Drugs
  • Premises Liability, Slip & Fall
  • Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect
  • Work-Related Injuries
  • Medical Malpractice [Link to Practice Area Overview]

Damages for wrongful death in Alabama are “punitive” only.  This means that the jury may only award damages to preserve human life and to deter similar wrongful conduct.
