Liability for Structure Fires in New Jersey
Some of the main causes of house fires in New Jersey include:
- Defective appliances
- Obsolete or worn electrics
- Broken or incorrectly installed gas lines
- Obstructed chimney flues
- Faulty or broken furnaces or boilers
Along with establishing the source of the fire, it is critical to determine if the action or inaction of another person or entity played a role in either the cause of the fire itself or a resident’s inability to flee the residence to safety.
If investigators are able to determine that an outside party was in fact negligent, an injured victim would have a valid claim against the liable party.
