Another fire occurred in an apartment building fire in the Bronx. This time, it has been reported that at least 6 people were injured on Monday. Hundreds of residents were forced to evacuate as the flames spread. Most of the reported injuries were due to smoke inhalation.
Fires in New York City apartment buildings are a very common and dangerous occurrence. Often, these fires are due to the negligence of the building owner or managing agent. In order to protect the rights of someone killed or injured in a fire, a full and proper investigation must be done to ascertain if an injured person or their loves ones are entitled to compensation under New York law.
If you or a loved one have been injured or killed in a fire, it is imperative that you hire a New York attorney experienced with handling and investigating these claims. These claims need to be investigated as soon as possible to preserve all necessary evidence and interview all witnesses. A delay in hiring the right New York attorney who knows how to do this can affect an injured person's ability to obtain a full recovery from the responsible person or company.
