Defective Smoke Detectors / Smoke Alarms

There are different types of fires and not all types of smoke alarms respond the same way to fires.

  • Ionization smoke alarms: These smoke detectors detect heat and are not adept at detecting slow, smoldering fires like kitchen fires, grease fires and electrical fires.
  • Photoelectric smoke alarms: This type of smoke detectors is better at detecting smoke, but may not respond adequately to fires that burn hot, but have little smoke.

Regardless the type of smoke alarm you own, it is important to consult with an experienced attorney to determine if you have cause for legal action. Our lawyers can help you explore your legal options.
