Smoke and Heat Inhalation Lawsuit

Last updated on: February 3, 2023


Every year, thousands of people are injured from heat and smoke inhalation. These injuries can be sustained during a tragic event like a fire at home or at work. Industrial fires often contain the added danger of toxic smoke. For instance, a huge recent fire in a furniture manufacturing plant released hydrogen cyanide smoke. This smoke combined with carbon monoxide becomes a deadly gas that first causes confusion, sickness and then death within just a few minutes. Those who survive can be left with a whole lifetime of medical problems like cerebral anoxia.   Defective Smoke Alarms Another cause of death or injury by smoke inhalation can come as the result of a defective smoke alarm. In one case, an apartment complex caught fire during the night. There were several fatalities and numerous injuries from smoke inhalation. The investigation showed that the smoke inhalation injuries occurred because of defective smoke alarms in many of the units.   Someone had a duty to provide working smoke alarms within the apartment complex. Whether it was the landlord or manufacturer of the smoke alarm was a question for the courts to decide. Meanwhile, at least a dozen people were left with injuries and serious ongoing medical needs. If you have a family member or even a friend who has suffered due to smoke or heat inhalation, then you may qualify for lawsuit damages.
