Who is Responsible for my Burn Injury After a Fire?
Earlier this week, a horrific fire had destroyed an apartment complex in Edgewater, leaving more than 1,000 people homeless. Maintenance workers performing some plumbing work with a blowtorch had started the fire. Instead of calling 911 right away, police say the workers called the supervisor who then called 911, 15 minutes after the fire was started.
Although the actions were determined to be an accident, it brings up an interesting question: What would happen if you received a burn injury in a fire such as this? Who will be paying your medical bills?
If you received a burn injury after a fire, chances are you have a long road of recovery ahead of you. You can may be expecting several expensive and extensive medical treatments such as skin grafts, physical therapy, and plastic surgery. You may face a lifetime of scarring, disfigurement, or problems with range of motion.
Chances are your health insurance will be footing the bill of your medical expenses until your case is settled. But just like with any personal injury case, if your burn injury was caused by someone else’s negligence, then you need an experienced personal injury lawyer by your side.
