Even if a victim is trapped in a fire for only a few minutes, the result can be serious, life-altering lung injury and brain damage. In fact, most fatalities from fires are due to smoke inhalation, not burns.

And smoke inhalation is harmful not only because your lungs can’t obtain oxygen for your body, but also because chemicals released during a fire can be toxic. Additionally, smoke can seriously burn your nose, throat and lungs—leaving scarring and chronic shortness of breath. Smoke inhalation can cause a host of other injuries, including:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Coughing
  • Nose or throat irritation
  • Nausea
  • Headaches
  • Fainting
  • Confusion
  • Seizures
  • Coma
  • Corneal and other eye damage

If negligence played any kind of role in a fire, the negligent parties may be held liable for the victims’ injuries.
