Experience

Fires and Explosions

Our attorneys mobilize to reach the scene of a disaster, wherever it is in the country, and do so quickly in order to conduct an investigation and begin preserving evidence. We work closely with experts on the application of fire science principles to fires and explosions related to appliances, household products, commercial machinery or equipment, as well as catastrophic fire losses resulting in property damage and/or loss of life. We also utilize damages experts to present complex damages such as business interruption losses and large scale damage to property.
