Burns From Flammable Clothing
Flammable clothing can be extremely dangerous for small children and the elderly. Igniting flammable clothing can cause extreme tissue damage through thermal burns and may even cause deaths.
All clothes sold to the general public must be in compliance with the Flammable Fabrics Act. Clothes are recalled frequently because of noncompliance to standards of the Flammable Fabrics Act.
If you or a loved one’s clothing has caught fire due to the clothing have a high flammability rating, personal injury lawsuits can be filed against the manufacturer and those involved in the distribution of the line, as can the individual who started the fire.
