Tips to Avoid Fire and Burn Injuries

The winter months increase the risk for fires in homes while residents are keeping warm. We’d like to present a few safety tips to avoid Connecticut Fire and Burn injuries.

As home heating costs continue to rise, residents often turn to alternative heat sources like wood-burning stoves and fireplaces. Poorly maintained chimneys could cause a home to catch fire, and residents may suffer severe injuries.

Fire officials also warn that space heaters were the most deadly of all ignition sources for fires in Connecticut homes. They account for one-third of all heating fires annually, and up to three-fourths of all fire-related deaths in our state.

The Fire and Burn Injury Attorneys with Carter Mario Law Firm encourage anyone who has sustained a serious burn injury to explore their legal options by discussing your case with a qualified attorney immediately.

My wife was cooking the other day at our neighbor's house, and she spelled a bunch of hot water on her leg. She has a pretty bad burn because of it, and now we want to hire a lawyer to help us out. This being said, I really appreciate you giving me some insight on things my wife can to do fine a lawyer, and then avoid ever doing this again. I’ll be sure to show this to her right away so she can be aware. Thanks a ton for talking about this.
