Have you become unwell due to a fire? Need free claims advice in Upper Slaughter?
Whilst most people assume that the biggest risk associated with a house fire is being burned, this isn’t always true. Although being burned can result in catastrophic injuries or even death, often the toxic smoke produced by the fire can be just as dangerous. Talk to us today if you need free claims advice in Upper Slaughter.
In many instances, people are overcome by the smoke and lose consciousness before the fire actually reaches them. Had it not been for the smoke, they may have been able to escape the building without suffering any injuries but the smoke can incapacitate even the healthiest and fittest person.
Even if you are able to escape from the building, if you’ve inhaled any smoke, you may suffer from certain illnesses as a result. Some people even find that their health is affected for months or even years after the incident.
Whilst many fires occur as a result of an accident, in some cases they can be attributed to someone or something. If, for example, someone started the fire intentionally they could obviously be held responsible. Alternatively, a faulty electrical device may have overheated and caused a fire to occur.
When should I contact injury solicitors in Upper Slaughter?
If you’ve been affected by a fire, you may need to be admitted to hospital in order to have your injuries treated. Even if you don’t need to stay in hospital for a lengthy period of time, you may still need time to get over the shock of the incident.
