Malfunctioning heaters

There are many ways in which a defective home heating device can cause a fire. We handle a wide range of home heater fire claims, including those involving:

  • Portable heaters
  • Permanent heaters
  • Improper heater design
  • Improper heater installation
  • Heaters that short out
  • Heaters that start fabrics on fire

Heater fires usually fall under product liability rather than premises liability. A property owner may be liable for burn injuries if they were somehow responsible for allowing the heater to catch fire.

Work with a team of skilled legal professionals & investigators.

Our New York burn injury lawyers have extensive experience handling product liability claims. We regularly utilized experts in topics such as engineering and product design to investigate these cases. We investigate the facts to determine who was responsible, whether it is the property owner, distributor, and product manufacturer. Anyone who played a role in the accident should be responsible for helping the victims recover.
