If you have been in a fire, whether you have suffered physical injury or not, you have experienced property loss, either through fire, smoke or water damage. Recovering compensation for your losses can be challenging. Your insurer will look for any evidence to indicate that you were responsible for the fire. You want an experienced attorney to protect your rights, one who has helped others in similar circumstances. Read our Fire Loss FAQS

We handle all aspects of a claim for losses caused by a fire, representing you in any dealings with your insurance carrier, as well as any legal action that must be filed. We will prepare and file all legal documents to help you seek full and fair compensation and will represent you in all meetings, hearings or proceedings throughout the process.

We help individuals seek compensation for all types of fire losses, including damage to real and personal property, as well as loss of income caused by fire damage to business assets or property. We also have extensive experience handling burn injury claims.

When you hire us to help you recover for a fire loss, we will work closely with experts to determine the cause and origin of the fire. We will examine whether damages were caused or aggravated by such factors as

  • defectively designed or malfunctioning smoke detectors
  • negligence in the installation or maintenance of sprinkler systems
  • construction negligence, including use of substandard building materials or violation of fire codes
  • landlord negligence, with respect or residential or business leaseholds

We represent people who have suffered a fire loss on a contingent fee basis. We will only charge you attorney fees if we recover compensation for your losses.
