Mt Morris, MI - Man Killed, Firefighter Injured in Fire on Penwood Rd

Every year, approximately 354,000 reports of residential structure fires are received by fire departments across the country. A fire can be extremely dangerous no matter where it starts. Major fire victims frequently suffer from smoke inhalation and third-degree burns. Structure fires kill an average of 2,620 civilians each year and injure another 11,220 people across the country, according to statistics.

Wrongful death lawsuits are filed when a loved one dies as a result of another party’s negligence, with the goal of compensating the surviving family members. Getting that compensation, on the other hand, is frequently easier said than done. The victim’s death does not absolve the perpetrator of responsibility. Insurance companies for those who are at fault frequently try to shift blame after a fatal accident. Rather than compensating the family members of the deceased after a fatal fire, the defendant should compensate the family members to assist with accident-related expenses. You’ll need the help of a Mt. Morris Township personal injury lawyer who has experience representing wrongful death victims.
