Injury House Fires in Chicago

Fires continue to occur at an alarming rate despite our state’s strict fire safety regulations, which mandate the installation and maintenance of smoke detectors in all dwellings and the installation of carbon monoxide detectors in residences with fuel-burning equipment. Gas seepage and leakage, appliance defects or poor cabling, smoke, heating, and other sources are the primary sources of residential fires in Chicago.

The following are a few distinct legitimate personal injury claims for injuries sustained in a Chicago home fire, but they are not exhaustive and include faulty electrical wiring, appliance defects, gas company negligence, and contractor error. For example, in the event that a contractor installed a gas stove incorrectly, resulting in a hazardous gas escape and fire, they may be held accountable.
