Have you been hurt in a fire in Greater Manchester?
Although many of us try to protect our homes and families by installing smoke alarms and fire detectors, a significant number of people are still hurt in fires every year. Although some people suffer burns when around fires, many more are injured because they inhale smoke.
While the majority of fires occur because of accidents, some are caused by faulty equipment or malfunctioning products. For example, if you purchase an electrical item you may not realise it’s faulty until damage has occurred. Unfortunately, a faulty electrical item may appear to work at first, but it could overheat and cause a fire to break out.
If this situation were to occur and cause you harm, it’s likely that you’d be able to make a compensation claim for a personal injury in Bolton, and the manufacturers of the product in question may be liable to pay you compensation.
Although the vast majority of fires are caused inadvertently, in some cases they can be started intentionally. Normally known as arson, starting a fire can be a criminal offence, and if you’re hurt because of someone else’s criminal activity you could make a claim against them for the injuries you suffered.
