Injuries Caused by the Failure of Flame Retardant Materials
The team at Carcione Cattermole Dolinski has conducted groundbreaking testing of fire retardant materials. Video documentation of what really happens when these products fail can act as powerful evidence in burn injury settlement negotiations or at a personal injury trial.
Our accomplished attorneys serve the legal needs of burn injury survivors and the families of fatal fire victims in Northern California. Our more than 25 years of experience in cases where commercial and consumer products cause injury enable us to offer highly knowledgeable legal advice to victims of faulty fire retardant materials, including:
- Flame retardant clothing, especially items designed for children
- Fire retardant paint and foam insulation
- Other flame resistant or fire retardant building materials
- Furniture labeled as flame or fire resistant
Paradoxically, burn injuries sustained when fire retardant materials fail may be more severe than those involving standard materials. This is especially true of clothing. Flame retardant clothing may melt and smolder, causing severe third degree burns.
