Mobile Home Fires

Ohio Mobile Home Fire Injury And Burn Victim Attorneys

Accidental mobile home fires can be especially dangerous for Ohio citizens. The rate of death in a mobile home fire is almost twice as high as any other dwelling. Each year, there are more than 22,000 fires in mobile homes, killing 500 and injuring more than 1,000 people. Tragically, children account for more than 20 percent of those lost in a trailer park or mobile home fire.

The major source for these fires relates to heating and the electrical equipment within these dwellings. The design of a mobile home can make it difficult to reach an escape from the fire, resulting in severe burn injuries and the loss of life. It is important to have working smoke detectors, and clear short routes to exits in order to prevent injury and save lives.

Sofas, Chairs, Curtains And Other Upholstery Can Act As Accelerants In A Fire

Products that use polyurethane foam and foam-filled products increase the dangers in these fires. Upholstered furniture and mattresses are a common source of ignition and when engulfed emit a thick black toxic smoke that generates intense heat making escape all but impossible.

Experienced Ohio Construction Defect And Burn Injury Lawyers Can Protect Your Rights

Fires and other injuries caused within a mobile home can result in several legal remedies for the victims of these incidents, and the families (estates) of those killed. Mobile homes are a common source of construction defects that contribute to the ignition of a fire, or which promote the rapid spread of a fire within a trailer. Poor design in the layout of a home can prevent a quick escape, and poorly designed or installed warning systems and smoke alarms contribute to injuries and financial loss. Other liabilities include:

  • Poor access or clear paths to escape (egress) doors and windows
  • Use of flammable and toxic materials on interior walls and ceilings
  • Inadequate “draftstops” that prevent movement of smoke and flames to attics and other spaces within the home
  • Faulty or poorly designed or installed smoke detectors
  • Upholstery materials in seating, mattresses and other coverings
  • Poorly designed electrical systems
