Standing up for victims of fire accidents and explosions

According to the American Burn Association, about 450,000 people suffer every year from burn injuries that require medical treatment.

Fires and explosions can happen anywhere, not just in cars, homes, or workplaces. The U.S. Fire Administration reports that cooking is the main cause of residential fires, followed by heating systems and accidents. Other causes include gas leaks, faulty wiring, or defective products.

No matter the source, the results are truly destructive and life-changing – chronic pain, severe burns, scarring, or disfigurement. These injuries may involve a long-term recovery through skin grafts and rehabilitation. On top of that, the victims can truly pay a price through skyrocketing medical bills and lost income. Then there’s the emotional trauma from the shock of the disaster, the injuries, and potentially lost loved ones. The devastating impact may be enough to entitle you to full and complete compensation.

How Will You Help Me Win?

Filing a claim on your insurance policy is one thing, but dealing with the injuries and the property damage is another. You may not receive the maximum compensation from your insurance company. Because of the nature of your injuries and where they occurred, you may also need to file for workers’ compensation or municipal liability.

You also must determine the cause of the fire or explosion. If you’re suffering physically and emotionally and lack time, you should focus on your health and recovery. Scott Baron & Associates will handle your case to give you peace of mind while you rebuild your life. We’ll battle those responsible to help you win the compensation you deserve.

You may be entitled to compensation for the following:

  • Medical bills
  • Prescription medication
  • Rehabilitation
  • Disability
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Funeral expenses (wrongful death cases)

In the process, we’ll consult with fire and forensic experts to find the cause, negotiate with your insurance company and any creditors, and fight for your rights.
