Our firm, in conjunction with Beasley Allen, (Attorneys LaBarron Boone and Rick Morrison) litigated and settled a case against an apartment complex in Andalusia, Alabama and its management company. Our client suffered second and third degree burns over 20% of her body when a fire started on the stove in the kitchen of the apartment she was renting from the defendants. Our investigation revealed that smoke detectors did not work, neither did the complex provide fire extinguishers as required by law. In addition, the fire stop canisters installed under the hood of the stove to extinguish grease fires did not work. Had the canisters deployed, the grease fire would have been extinguished immediately.
