When a fire accident occurs, it can be devastating. Even if it is not fatal, the fire can cause significant property loss, serious injuries and emotional trauma. The damage can be a long-term or permanent problem and cost tens of thousands or millions of dollars. Injuries from a fire accident can include burns, disfigurement and smoke inhalation.
Fire accidents can occur in many different situations, including at home and at work. Many fire accidents can be prevented by taking proper safety precautions, following manufacturer instructions and storing and handling combustible materials properly. But even with the best of efforts, a fire accident can happen in an instant.
There are a number of common causes of fire accidents, such as defective products, smoking in or near flammable materials and electrical malfunctions. It is also possible for someone to purposefully set fires in order to cause harm. In either event, if you suffered injuries or losses in a fire accident caused by another party’s negligence, that party may be responsible for your damages.
If you’re injured in a fire accident, you can file a personal injury claim or workers’ compensation claim, depending on the circumstances of your case. Our attorneys can help you discover what caused your fire accident and determine which parties may be responsible for your injuries.
We will thoroughly investigate your case and gather evidence, such as photos and videos and police, fire department, safety inspection and medical reports. We will interview witnesses and speak to doctors and first responders, and hire experts. Our goal is to get you the maximum settlement for your losses and injuries, including all forms of lost income, future expected expenses and care into the future and non-economic damages such as pain and suffering.
Injuries from a fire accident can be devastating, leaving you with chronic physical and psychological issues. Burns can lead to scarring and disfigurement, numbness, painful limb movement restrictions, secondary infections and expensive long-term physical therapy and surgeries. It’s crucial to hire an attorney with experience in burn injury cases to get you the maximum compensation for your injuries and losses.
Family members of fire victims can suffer emotional trauma in addition to the property and financial losses. These feelings include anger, shock, disbelief, guilt and anxiety.
