My apartment building had a fire and I was badly injured. What are my rights?

If you were badly hurt in a fire in an apartment or rented home, you have tenant rights. Were you having problems with your electricity or appliances and already notified the landlord? Did he try to save costs by having unlicensed workers handle electrical wiring? Here are some other issues that may help you successfully collect money for your injuries and damages following a fire in your apartment:

  • Landlord’s failure to comply with fire codes
  • Lack of smoke detectors
  • Illegal apartments
  • Inadequate electrical wiring
  • Defective room or space heaters
  • Faulty appliances
