Personal Injury Attorney Genoa

Nevada Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Accident Victims in Genoa

Genoa, a relatively small, census-designated community, is located near the eastern shores of Lake Tahoe in Douglas County, Nevada.

Originally founded in 1851 by Mormon pioneers as a trading post, Genoa, which is part of the Carson River Valley, was the first community in the Nevada Territory. Located roughly 40 miles to the south of Reno, Genoa measures approximately 9.1 square miles and is home to approximately 940 people.

The town’s historic district, which is south of the county seat of Minden, has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1975.

Fire Accidents in Genoa

Even residents in small communities like Genoa suffer as the result of unexpected accidents, including motor vehicle accidents, slip and fall accidents, and, sadly, devastating fire accidents.

Fires can occur on commercial or residential property, or even in public areas, such as parks or roadways. Regardless of where they occur, fire-related accidents are often traumatic experiences for all parties involved.

Injuries suffered in these types of accidents go deeper than the serious physical aspect – they cause emotional scarring that can be endured for the rest of the victims’ lives. Burn victims sometimes require ongoing, extensive medical care to rehabilitate and help them live their lives, and often face expensive medical expenses as a result.

Although fires are unpredictable and can be accidental, they generally start as a result of negligent behavior or hazardous conditions.

Some situations that increase the risk of a fire accident include:

  • Unsupervised fireplaces
  • Lack of proper prevention, including extinguishers or alarms
  • Thoughtless placement of flammable belongings
  • Faulty connections on gas grills

Due to their severity, fire accidents see a large number of injuries and fatalities annually. Each year, an estimated 3,000 people lose their lives due to a fire accident, with roughly 15,000 more suffering serious injury. Although fire accidents can happen almost anywhere, the vast majority – roughly 85% – occur in residential properties.

Although it is impossible to fully avoid an accident, it is important to remember that precautions can be taken to minimize risk, including:

  • Placing fire extinguishers in hazardous areas of the home
  • Installing fire alarms throughout your home and regularly changing the batteries
  • Developing a fire escape plan with your household
