Defective Smoke Detectors

Handling smoke detector defect claims throughout Ohio

Every residence, apartment and condominium in Ohio is required to have a smoke alarm. Installation of smoke alarms must meet specific requirements to ensure that they work, and proper maintenance is necessary. Even if all property owners do everything right, sometimes smoke detectors are defective, and when that happens, the result can be devastating.

Cincinnati lawyers with the experience and the resources to protect you if a smoke detector defect caused injury

Some products that are called smoke detectors actually detect heat, not smoke. The problem with these is that they are not triggered by a house filled with smoke if a slow-burning fire does not produce much heat.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that millions of homes do not have properly working smoke alarms, due to dead batteries and improper installation. Death or serious injuries caused by fires are tragic, but arguing that a smoke detector defect was the cause is harder than it appears. A successful claim must include significant evidence as to the cause of the malfunction or defect and why that led to the injury.

We ask questions such as, "Why didn't the low-battery alarm sound when the batteries needed changing?" Elk & Elk has the experience and the resources to do this. Our firm includes a staff of accident reconstructionists, investigators and others who are dedicated to searching for the truth and investigating your case.
