MORE THAN JUST DAMAGE TO THE SKIN

People that have been severely burned understand that a burn affects more than just a person's skin. If a burn is a third or fourth degree one it can mean that tissue under the skin is damaged and this can cause disfigurements  not only to your skin but also your body as well. Also, inhaling smoke in a fire often leads to serious breathing conditions. Unfortunately, kids under five years of age as well as people more than sixty-five years of age are the most likely to get burned or die because of a fire.  High treatment expenses as well as emotional distress combined often make a problem like this harder.
Fires likely have many causes in both the home and workplace including defective products or perhaps rental property that was not kept in a safe condition. If a defective product or negligent maintenance results in a fire, the manufacturer of that product or the individual in charge of that maintenance can be held responsible for you and your loved ones’ injuries, including physical and psychological harm as well as property damages.
