House Fires in Mississippi
Thousands are severely hurt or killed in residential fires in Mississippi every year. Those who survive the fire-related injuries they sustain have to learn how to get through lengthy hospital stays and may be unable to return to work for a prolonged period of time. This can have a negative effect on each aspect of their lives.
Residential fires can cause injuries like smoke inhalation, serious burns, and even death. Many factors may contribute to these injuries and fatalities. Some common types of negligence that may lead to residential fires include:
- Defective fire equipment
- Code violations by contractors/subcontractors
- Smoke detectors that don’t work
- Old electrical wiring
- Negligence on the part of the home/owner/resident
