It’s the responsibility of a property owner to install adequate fire prevention and warning systems to stop a fire from breaking out on their property or protect people in the event that one does happen. If they don’t take the proper precautions and follow regulations, they can be held responsible for injuries people on their property sustain as a result of a fire. An injured individual may have the right to pursue compensation after a fire occurs on someone else’s property, potentially providing coverage for their medical costs, lost wages, and out-of-pocket expenses.
