Taking Legal Action After a Smoke Alarm Failure
Although we hope to never hear the sound of a smoke alarm, we depend on these devices to warn us in the event of a fire. For the most part, smoke alarms are dependable. But unfortunately and all too often, smoke alarm failure leads to devastating injuries and untimely death.
At the personal injury law firm of Aiken & Scoptur, S.C., we represent individuals who have been injured in fires where a smoke alarm didn't work, and also family members who have lost a loved one in a fatal accident. If your smoke alarm failed to detect a fire, if the device wasn't functioning, or if another factor contributed to the smoke alarm's failure, contact our Milwaukee smoke alarm failure lawyers to learn about your legal options.
Smoke Alarm Failure in Apartment Buildings
In apartment buildings, landlords are responsible for installing and maintaining smoke alarms. Failure to do so can put renters at risk for suffering burn injuries, smoke inhalation injuries, and other injuries in the event of a fire. Landlords must make sure that fire alarms are functioning properly, are replaced as often as required by law, and that the area around the smoke alarm is free from any factors that would affect it from properly working.
Wrongful Death Claims
Our firm represents the family members of individuals who have suffered fatal burn injuries in a house or apartment fire. If you have lost someone close to you, we can help you pursue a wrongful death claim to seek compensation for your losses.
