Have you been hurt by a fire?
Although relatively rare, serious fires can occur anywhere, at any time. Whilst many people who suffer serious injuries because of a fire will have been hurt in their own home, fires can easily break out in a workplace, a public place or even in a vehicle.
Even though smoke alarms are relatively cheap to purchase, some homes are still without them. Whilst a smoke alarm doesn’t guarantee your safety, it can alert you to the presence of a fire and leave you enough time to vacate the building without suffering any harm.
However, if you are hurt by a fire, you may find that you suffer injuries ranging from mild to very serious. Whilst some people suffer burns as a result of a fire, smoke inhalation can be just as dangerous and actually accounts for some of the more life-threatening injuries when a fire breaks out.
If you’re hurt because of a fire which wasn’t your fault, you may find that you’re able to make a claim for compensation with help from a personal injury lawyer in Bolventor. Although many fires are started accidentally, in some cases, a person may have unlawfully started the fire which hurt you. Even if the fire has been started intentionally, a personal injury lawyer in Bolventor could still help you to make a claim and you could still obtain compensation for the harm that you’ve suffered.
If you’ve suffered serious injuries or you’re suffering from shock as a result of the fire, you may prefer to wait to make a compensation claim, rather than making a claim straightaway. As we’re able to help claimants who have suffered injuries within the last three years, you don’t have to rush into making a claim immediately after the incident, if you don’t want to.
