Do You Suspect a Water Heater Caused Your House Fire?
Often, a water heater may be the source of a house fire or explosion. Sometimes, people near the water heater may suffer significant burns when the fire ignites due to the water heater. Although a product defect does not always exist, often there is a defect in the water heater that contributes or causes a fire to ignite. Technology exists to completely prevent the pilot light from being able to ignite flammable vapors, but unfortunately this technology was not always used when available. If you or someone you care about suffered fire and burn injuries, our attorneys will work to diligently investigate the situation. We work with industry experts and local experts, including firefighters and emergency responders, to collect evidence. We can help you determine the cause of your fire and work to secure compensation for your medical expenses, property loss, lost wages as well as damages for your pain and suffering.
