Fires in any home or facility can be deadly, exposing occupants to burn injuries, smoke inhalation, and life-threatening injury. In nursing homes and assisted care facilities, the stakes are even higher. Residents may not be able to easily escape a fire on their own and may need assistance to be evacuated correctly. They may also be more vulnerable to fire-related injuries because of their advanced age and any pre-existing conditions.

Unfortunately, battery-related injuries occur more often than you may think and they can be devastating. Each year, people are injured or even killed by exploding or otherwise malfunctioning batteries. Batteries that overheat or catch fire can cause serious burns and facial injuries if the batteries are in your phone or e-cigarette. Incorrectly functioning batteries in your car can cause you to crash. In your home, poorly designed or flawed batteries can cause fires and serious injury to you and others.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
