Handling Injury Cases Arising From Combustible Fabric

As attorneys with considerable experience handling cases involving significant burn injuries, we know that many burns are the result of flammable fabric. The fabric can be in clothing, upholstery, blankets and bedding, curtains, and other household items. The government regulates flammability to some degree. However, the standards are minimal at best, and materials that burn readily are commonly used in clothing and household fabrics. In addition, the standards apply differently to different types of fabric, based on the intended use. For example, children's pajamas must meet a higher fire resistance standard than fabric used for adult clothing.

Individuals who were burned as a result of flammable fabric are urged to contact a knowledgeable attorney who understands the standards that govern flammability and with the experience to handle these sorts of cases. At Clark, Hunt, Ahern & Embry, our Cambridge trial lawyers handle burn cases arising from combustible fabric. We are aggressive advocates for clients who were burned or otherwise injured because of dangerously flammable fabrics.

Examples of Flammable Fabrics

We undertake claims for clients who were burned because of flammable fabric in:

  • Clothing
  • Upholstery and furniture
  • Mattresses
  • Curtains

Manufacturers or importers of fabric, clothing factories, designers, testing labs, retail establishments and others may be held liable for burns resulting from flammable fabric.

Fires involving combustible fabric may be deadly not only because of the fire but also because of the fumes created by the burning fabric. Inhalation of toxic smoke can be as fatal as significant burns. In any fatality involving flammable fabric, our lawyers investigate the possibility of filing a wrongful death claim.
