Premises Liability Claims Involving Fire

Property owners in the Columbia area are under an obligation to maintain their property and to do everything they reasonably can to prevent a fire from ever starting on their property. However, some property owners fail to take the precautionary measures they need to in order to prevent fires, sometimes resulting in devastating consequences. Under these circumstances, property owners may typically be held liable for any damages resulting from their negligence.

Common Causes of Fire

While there may be very little a property owner could do to prevent some fires, others may be found to be the direct result of his or her negligence. Among the most commonly cited causes of fires include:

  • Faulty or exposed electrical wiring
  • Outlets that are not working correctly
  • Natural gas leaks

Property owners are responsible for maintaining their properties in order to prevent hazardous situations that may result in a fire. If a fire does result directly from a property owner’s failure to uphold his or her safety obligations, financial compensation may be pursued by those injured in the incident.
