What Increases the Risk of Fires?
Texas premises liability laws maintain that a person must keep any property they own safe for visitors to that property. There are many measures property owners can take to prevent a fire, and when they do not, they put the safety of others at risk. Some of negligent actions that property owners may take that increase the risk of fires include:
- Failing to maintain and repair electrical connections
- Failing to install proper cooling mechanisms and ventilation for appliances
- Violating building codes for room capacity
- Failing to ensure safe operation of cooking equipment
- Failing to limit flammable material on a property
- Failing to supply working fire extinguishers, smoke detectors, and/or sprinkler systems
Most fires are caused by an accident, but if the above preventative conditions are not in place, the negligent property owner could be to blame.
Types of Injuries that Result from Fires
Burns are incredibly painful injuries and the healing process can be quite long, depending on the severity of the burn. There are several different types of injuries one can sustain while escaping a burning building:
- First degree burns: Burns to the outer layer of the skin. These burns are often easily treatable but should still be fully evaluated by a doctor.
- Second degree burns: These burns cause deeper damage through more layers of the skin and often require trauma care, including extended treatment, surgery, or skin graphs.
- Third degree burns: This is a serious injury in which all layers of the epidermis (skin) is burned. Recovery time is longer and hospital stay is often required.
- Fourth degree burns: The most serious burns cause damage through all of the skin and into the tendons and ligaments.
- Smoke or debris-related injuries: Even if you are not burned in a fire, heavy smoke can trigger negative and potentially life-threatening physical reactions, notably in your respiratory system, and especially if you have an existing condition.
Medical expenses for treating the above injuries can quickly become expensive, and you should not have to bear that burden alone.
