Ohio Injuries And Wrongful Death From Fires And Explosions Attorneys
Each year explosions and fires across the state of Ohio result in severe burn injuries and sometimes the wrongful death of our citizens, as well as substantial damage to personal and business properties. Clark, Perdue & List is committed to protecting the rights of those who suffer injuries or financial loss in a fire, or in explosions that are due to the negligence of others, or through the fault of a structure or manufacturer’s design, or contents.
There are strict laws governing the implementation of smoke detectors, fire alarms, and sprinkler systems in public and private buildings, apartments, businesses, even our houses and mobile homes. In the event of a fire there are signs and lights that are designed to help us to locate an exit, and regulations regarding their installation, operation and access. You or someone you love may suffer a severe burn injury or even lose his or her life due to inappropriately locked fire exits, or fire escapes that are not properly designed, functional or clearly marked.
Smoke detectors can fail for a number of reasons, including dead batteries, improper electrical connection, neglect, or improper maintenance. Our experienced and proven personal injury and accident attorneys work to establish the cause of a fire or explosion, and to identify the business owners, proprietors, landlords, property owners, construction and utility crews, or manufacturers responsible.

A burn injury can be one of the most painful to sustain, and most leave permanent damage to skin, tissue, muscle, and even the movement of arms, hands, fingers, legs and toes. Smoke inhalation and hazardous chemicals in the air can damage lungs and internal airways. Those who are injured in a fire require substantial medical treatment over a long period of time resulting in multiple medical procedures, physical and occupational therapy. The medical bills accumulate quickly, and during recovery lost wages and deductibles make it difficult for a family to meet expenses.
