Residential Fires in New Jersey
Oftentimes, fires occur due to the negligent acts of more than one party. The causes of most residential fires are usually associated with human error.
Rooting out the exact cause of a structure fire, and deciding who should be held accountable for the injuries and losses it caused, is an issue that demands an immediate investigation by the victim’s attorney.
If you experienced significant losses or personal injury in a fire, we strongly urge you to contact a New Jersey personal injury lawyer that has the resources, knowledge, and staff required to fully investigate and pursue the claim that best fits your circumstances.
