Causes of Fires and Electrical Injuries
Fire-related injuries can be caused by many different accidents. For example, someone could sustain a serious burn or inhale toxic smoke in a house fire. Other potential hazardous conditions that can result in fire and electrical injuries include:

Work-Related Electrical Injuries and Burns
Many times, construction workers building structures come into contact with dangerous power lines or faulty power tools. If you or your family member was injured at work, you may be entitled to more than a workers’ compensation claim.
House and Apartment Fires
When a house or apartment fire is caused by poor electrical work, an electrician could be at fault. Additionally, if an apartment building manager fails to maintain smoke detectors and sprinklers or heed other building code requirements, the property owner can he held responsible if tenants or guests are injured in a fire.
