When A Disaster Wipes Out Traces Of Its Cause, Assigning Responsibility Is A Job For Legal And Technical Experts
Being the victim of a serious fire is one of the most traumatizing events a person can go through. Not only can you face severe burns, smoke inhalation injuries and a painful rehabilitation, you may also have to deal with the loss of your home- and in the worst cases, the loss of a loved one.
After a fire, as you work to rebuild your life, it's important to have a strong legal team helping you address claims for compensation.
Greensburg Fire-Related Injury Law Firm
There are numerous complexities involved in a fire accident claim. At Goodrich & Geist, our first step will be to determine the cause and origin of the fire. Some fires start from a gas leak or explosion. Others are due to an electrical problem within your home. And many are caused by a faulty or defective household appliance, such as a stove. However, finding the origin can be a difficult task if the fire has seemingly destroyed all of the evidence.
Fortunately, our law firm works with some of the top experts in fire accident scene reconstruction. These highly trained specialists have studied fires and their causes for years. They know where to look for clues and how to properly identify a fire's cause. But this is only the first steps in assigning responsibility and building an argument for your compensation. Call us to arrange a free consultation, and we will walk you through the legal process and how we can help, step by step.
Even if there was no liable party in the start of the fire, you may be able to bring a claim for other reasons, such as lack of adequate warning from a defective smoke detector.
Our attorneys are fully equipped to address a wide range of fire injury cases, including those involving:
- Kitchen fires
- Grease fires
- Electrical fires
- Natural gas explosions
- Propane explosions
- Smoke inhalation
