Can I Sue if a Fire Hydrant Is Out of Service?

According to Rotondo Law, the leading personal injury lawyer in Toronto, if the fire hydrant outside of your home or business is damaged and a fire occurs, you may potentially have a case against the municipality. Depending on the circumstances of the fire and the damage to your home or business, your insurance company can go after the municipality for damages. There has to be a causal relationship between the damage caused to your home and the inoperable fire hydrant.


Put simply, if the damage would have been less severe had the fire hydrant been working, you have a case. Even then, you can only sue for the differential. Similarly, if the landlord of your apartment building or the location of your business has not kept up safety standards, you can also file a case against them, regardless of whether or not the nearest fire hydrant was working. If the fire hydrant closest to your home is out of order for an extended period of time, do not hesitate to call continually until it is repaired. The chances of a fire occurring are slim, but as a home or business owner, you want to know that the fire department will have access to a working fire hydrant should the unthinkable happen.

If your home was extensively damaged in a fire due to an out-of-order fire hydrant, call on Rotondo Law. We will closely look at your case and determine if further damage to your home could have been prevented had the fire hydrant been in proper working order. And best of all, we offer a free, no-obligation initial consultation. Should you decide to hire us, we will see your case through to completion—and remember, we don’t get paid until you do!

A working fire hydrant in close proximity to your home or business is a basic safety feature that everyone should have. If your house or business has suffered extensive damage that could have been prevented if the closest fire hydrant had not been out of service, call Rotondo Law, the top personal injury lawyer in the Greater Toronto Area.
