Fires Cost In Damages and Lives

Fires can start from a myriad of sources in a home or building. These include but are not limited to boiler explosion, gas leaks, or any other negligent action, mishap or malfunction in regards to fire sources. In 2013, Texas fire departments responded to about 71,119 domestic fires, including in Houston.These fires add up to $621 million in damages, approximately 86 injuries to civilians, and 11 fatalities. This means a fire occurred almost every 7 minutes. Cooking accidents and mishaps in the kitchen remains the number one leading cause of these fires.The second biggest cause of home fire fatalities is due to the mishandling or dysfunction of heating equipment. And what links them all together? Negligence and inattentiveness when dealing with fire equipment.

Ways Fires or Explosions Can Start

Here are the main causes of fire and harmful explosions that may lead to injuries, property damage, and sometimes even death include:

  • Cooking
  • Electrical fires and wire conductivity
  • Smoking indoors
  • Candles
  • Alcohol-related negligence
  • Open flames/matches
  • Gas heating appliances

Dealing with the Insurance Company

Although there are different forms of insurance that can cover fire and explosion losses, unfortunately, many time these companies are not as willing to follow through with their promises. You need a personal injury lawyer who can deal with the insurance companies on your behalf and get you the compensation you deserve.
