While plenty of attorneys broadcast their services for fire-related injuries, the truth is that not every law firm can successfully handle these cases. Often, victims are dealing with considerable property damage, excessive medical expenses, pain, suffering, and other terrible losses.

It is not uncommon for fires to be caused by the negligent actions of more than one party. The causes of most residential fires are usually associated with human error. 

Sorting 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. 

Additionally, the intricate technical issues that usually accompany fire accident claims often involve the application of tricky state and federal regulations, laws, and industry standards. 

If you experienced considerable 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.
