Liability For Panorama City Apartment Fires

Residential fires are much more common than many people realize. According to the National Fire Protection Association, “On average, a fire department responded to a fire somewhere in the US every 23 seconds in 2020. A home structure fire was reported every 89 seconds, a home fire death occurred every three hours and 24 minutes, and a home fire injury occurred every 46 minutes.” There are a number of common causes of apartment fires.

  • Cooking accidents
  • Lit candles
  • Electrical malfunctions
  • Battery explosions

Pursuant to California Civil code 1714, everyone is responsible for maintaining their property in a reasonably safe condition. If an apartment owner fails to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition, this could form the basis of a negligence claim. Any person that is injured in an apartment fire may have legal recourse through a wrongful death claim.
