Flammable clothing can cause serious and permanent injury or even death. If the victim’s clothing caught fire as a result of being highly flammable, a lawsuit can be filed against the parties who were involved in the chain of distribution, the person who started the fire or the company that sold that product responsible for starting it.
To recover for injuries suffered as a result of high flammability of clothing, injury victims must prove:
- The clothing was unsafe and unreasonably dangerous because it was highly or unusually flammable
- The defect in the clothing was the cause of the victim’s injuries
- The wrongdoer sold the clothing or the fabric from which the clothing was made
- The unsafe condition in the clothing or fabric existed at the time of the sale by the manufacturer, distributor or seller
- The wrongdoer—whether the manufacturer, distributor, or seller of flammable clothing—was engaged in the business of selling the clothing or fabric
