Hidden Hazard: Las Vegas Personal Injury Attorney Suggests Having Your Water Heater Checked

September 17, 2016

 

It sits hidden in basements or behind closet doors and is often forgotten, but a neglected water heater can endanger you and your family. Kevin R. Hansen, a Las Vegas lawyer suggests proper water heater maintenance to help keep you safe.

 

Homeowners need to take care of their water heaters. Water heaters can cause flooding and insurance issues, but at its worst, a neglected water heater can blow up and destroy your home and possibly injury or kill people.

 

A popular television show, Myth Busters, showed how a water heater easily exploded through two floors of a home, coming out the roof. Water heaters act like a rocket when they blow and can cause serious damage.

 

Additionally, if you rent out property and you do not take care of the water heater, it could result in flooding and possible legal liabilities.  It is easier to properly maintain your water heater now than to neglect it and try to fix the damage later.

 

If a neglected water heater has injured you or someone you know, contact a Las Vegas personal injury attorney for help.
