Smoke Inhalation Claim
Combustion gets caused by the rapid breakdown of a substance by heat. The phenomenon is commonly known as burning. Smoke is a mixture of heated particles and gases. It is impossible to predict the exact composition of smoke produced by a fire.
If you have inhaled smoke from the fire at work and sustained a smoke inhalation injury, you are eligible to file a workers’ compensation claim.
