Have you been hurt in a fire at home?
Unfortunately, a fire can occur at home, work or even in an outdoor location. Often, fires break out in woods, forests and green areas and nearby homes can suffer damage as a result. With trees and bushes acting as kindling for a fire, it’s easy to see how they can spread quickly and leave homes and people in danger.
Whilst people may assume that the only danger of fire is being burned, there are actually numerous ways in which fire can cause injuries. In addition to causing burns, fires produce smoke rapidly. If you’re nearby and you inhale this smoke, you may struggle to breathe and find that you need to vacate the area quickly.
Although you may be able to escape, if you’ve inhaled smoke you may find that you require medical treatment due to damage to your lungs caused by the fire. In addition to this, many people suffer injuries as a result of trying to escape from a fire or move away from a nearby fire.
Often, smoke from a fire can make it difficult to see. This, combined with panic and adrenalin, can make it more difficult to escape. If you’re unfamiliar with your surroundings, you may find that you trip or fall which can result in you sustaining additional injuries.
If you’ve been hurt because of a fire which wasn’t your fault, it may have been caused by someone or something else and someone may have even started the fire as part of a criminal act. In such instances, there is a chance that injury solicitors in Ullesthorpe could help you to obtain compensation for the harm you’ve suffered.
