Wrongful Death

Our client was in an apartment in Washington, DC when a mattress caughtmfire through no fault of his. In an attempt to save the lives others, our client ran to get a fire extinguisher. Upon locating the extinguisher, he noted that the glass window to the cabinet housing was broken. He grabbed the extinguisher and ran back to the apartment to put out the fire. However, when he attempted to use the extinguisher, he found that it was empty and the pin had been removed. With the fire and danger growing, our client took it upon himself to move the mattress out onto a fire escape to prevent the fire from spreading. Unfortunately in the process he suffered several burns on his body. We filed suit against the owner and management company for the building and, after extensive litigation, obtained a settlement of $225,000 prior to trial.
