After someone is hurt or killed in a house fire or apartment fire, the question that might arise is, “Why didn’t the smoke detector go off?”

Little known fact: There are three types of smoke detectors: ionization smoke detectors, photoelectric smoke detectors and smoke detectors that combine both technologies. Ionization smoke detectors are the most common. Unfortunately, they are also the most notorious for failing to detect slow-building smoking fires. Manufacturers know this.

Holding Smoke Detector Manufacturers Accountable

At Gauntt, Koen, Binney & Kidd, LLP, our smoke detector malfunction attorneys hold manufacturers accountable when their products fail to go off and prevent burn injuries, smoke inhalation injuries and fire-related deaths.

If you or a loved one has been hurt in a fire and you believe a defective smoke detector played a role, we can help. The experience we bring to these cases allows us to successfully take on large businesses across the country to get compensation for victims of fires. From our law office in The Woodlands, Texas, we handle these cases nationally.

Multiple Claims Are Possible In Fire Cases

Our lawyers take great care to identify all liable parties in house fire and apartment fire cases. The smoke detector manufacturer responsible for a defective product may be only one of several targets of lawsuits. In some cases, there may be a separate product liability claim against the manufacturer of the defective product that sparked the fire. There may also be a claim against the property owner for maintenance issues or other problems that played a role in the fire. Our goal is to get you all the compensation you are entitled to.
