Rented Mobile Home Fire

The Walkup Melodia fire injury team negotiated a mediated settlement on behalf of a 57-year-old woman who sustained second- and third-degree burns when the trailer home she was renting from the defendant caught fire from unknown sources. Conor alleged that the defendant failed to adequately maintain the electrical outlets in the rented trailer, resulting in uninhabitable living conditions. The defendant alleged that the fire resulted from the plaintiff’s own negligence in installing and operating a cooking burner fueled by two small propane tanks inside the trailer.
