What Type Of Liability Is At Issue In Your Case?

Our law firm is a trusted resource for clients facing a broad spectrum of fire litigation cases. Our experience includes:

  • Resolving product liability claims involving fires allegedly started by clothes dryers
  • Assisting national insurance companies in recovering money through subrogation claims
  • Handling premises liability claims related to alleged fire safety code violations
  • Representing clients in all other fire litigation related to propane tanks, grills, appliances, buildings, exhaust fans and much more

As part of our comprehensive strategy in these cases, our firm first interviews local fire officials and reviews their reports. After gathering all vital information, our lawyers consult with our network of experts to identify the true origin and cause of the blaze.

We are familiar with the National Fire Protection Association's guide to fire investigations, as well as the complex legal issues involved in insurance coverage disputes over fire and homeowners insurance policies.
