Fatal House Fires in Michigan

Bedford Twp., MI – Woman Killed in Fire Incident on S Telegraph RdBoth the frequency of fires and the number of lives lost in them have increased dramatically in our state. According to the Michigan Fire Inspectors Society's projections, fire-related deaths will rise by 15% this year compared to the average over the preceding five years. Since June's end, 76 individuals have lost their lives in fires throughout the state of Michigan.

While 25% of deadly fires were determined to have begun in the living room, just 5% were found to have started in the kitchen. If a fire breaks out in a home or flat, the local fire department will investigate all possible causes. Furthermore, authorities may use this information to help determine blame.

Also, in order to cover the costs associated with the damage, a property owner would often file a claim with their own insurance company. The insurance provider will commission an outside investigation to determine the full extent of the fire damage and calculate the likely costs of repair or replacement. However, insurance claims adjusters have a poor reputation for adequately compensating victims of catastrophic home fire losses.

You may be able to seek legal action if a house fire in Michigan causes you harm or takes the life of a loved one. Preventing fires requires taking measures and conducting regular inspections. In addition, if you are injured in a fire in a private or leased house, you may have grounds for a negligence lawsuit.

Whether the victims of a home fire want to file a claim for premises responsibility and blame or just need help communicating with insurance companies, an experienced attorney can help. The months and weeks after a house fire may be difficult, particularly if loved ones perished in the blaze. If you need advice on how to deal with the aftermath of a house fire, a personal injury attorney may be able to help.
