Experienced CT trial lawyers representing burn injury victims
Fires can not only cause significant property damage, but also catastrophic and potentially fatal burn injuries. What initially seemed like an accidental fire can be traced to negligent and inattentive acts by a property owner or utility company, who should bear liability for fire-related harms. Bartlett Legal Group has represented many burn-related cases over the years. Using fire experts we try to determine liability caused by many factors such as negligence, improper town inspections, faulty work, defective products, and others.

Owners of apartment complexes must adhere to strict standards of safety for their tenants. When they ignore electrical problems or other defects, fires break out, resulting in more than one victim of the fire and subsequent burn injuries. Utility companies responsible for installing and grounding gas lines should be attending to every detail. The smallest oversight can have catastrophic consequences.
We have handled complex cases involving substantial injuries and destruction of property as a result of fires. One such case involved a catastrophic fire at the Peachtree Apartment Complex in Norwich, Connecticut. Attorney Bartlett was the lead attorney, representing 52 tenants who were injured, displaced, or lost all of their possessions when a fire tore through the apartment buildings, spreading uncontrolled in the contiguous roof of the structure. Expert testimony showed that the fire was allowed to spread due to the lack of code mandated fire stops. Through the use of this expert testimony, as well as admissions elicited during depositions, a favorable confidential settlement was negotiated on behalf of all of the victims following a multi-day mediation.
