Inspection of Fire Scene by Fire by your lawyer is imperative!
Because of legal issues and the complexity of fire and explosion cases, prompt inspection of the fire or explosion scene is essential. Without it, valuable evidence regarding the cause and origin of the fire can be lost. That’s why it’s so important to consult with a lawyer as soon as possible after a fire. Experienced burn injury lawyers will be able to speak with the fire marshal, obtain copies of fire and law enforcement reports and make sure that trained fire investigators inspect the fire or explosion scene and gather appropriate evidence.

Consult Fire, Explosion and Burn Injury Lawyer before Signing Anything
To protect your interests, do not talk to anyone about your accident other than police and fire officials.Do not give any recorded statement. Anything you say to insurance company representatives or investigators could make it harder for you to settle your claim. It is also a good idea not to sign anything, particularly some kind of release form, without talking to a fire, explosion and burn injury lawyer first.
The Lawyer Will Help You Understand the Compensation You Are Entitled to
If you have been involved in a fire or explosion, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, disfigurement, emotional pain and suffering, mental impairment, and physical disability. If a death occurred, the decedent’s survivors may also be entitled to damages, typically referred to as “pecuniary loss,” including the value of the decedent’s advice, care and companionship.

Fire and explosion cases are among the most complicated and expensive personal injury claims. They require input from experts on issues such as the cause and origin of the fire, fire dynamics, flammable fabrics, warnings and instructions, electrical engineering, explosive gasses, smoke detectors and federal, state and local codes. Only the most experienced lawyers are capable of handling cases of this magnitude and complexity.
