The owner of an apartment building and the property manager has a duty to maintain safe conditions on the property. That means keeping the electrical and heating systems in working order, making sure that smoke alarms and sprinkler systems work, providing clear markings for building exits and not blocking those exits. If the building owner or property management company fails in this regard and a fire causes injuries or death, the victims of the fire may be able to claim compensation.
Wyatt Law Firm vigorously represents seriously injured people and the families of wrongful death victims. We have experience in cases involving building fires and other types of property owner negligence.

Careful And Thorough Investigation Is Key
Because a fire can destroy important evidence pointing to the origin of the blaze, it is important to conduct a comprehensive investigation of the conditions that caused the fire. Investigations conducted by the fire department and law enforcement agencies can pinpoint where and how a blaze broke out. But in a fire litigation case, there may be other issues needing investigation, including liability and financial damages.
In building fire cases, Wyatt Law Firm conducts an investigation parallel to that of the municipal fire inspector and other government agencies. Our own team of fire inspectors, engineers, lawyers and other professionals work diligently to confirm the cause of the fire and determine the other issues that are central to a fire liability case.
Who is the actual owner of the building? Was the fire the result of a dangerous product such as a faulty sprinkler system or boiler? Did the building owner comply with relevant municipal codes? How do you determine the full extent of the economic and noneconomic losses of the client?
Our firm has the investigative resources and advocacy skills to answer these and other questions arising from building fire cases. We will work tirelessly to get the best possible result for you.
