According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), Local fire departments responded to nearly 1.4 million fires throughout the United States in 2019. The fires caused 3,700 civilian deaths and 16,600 reported civilian injuries. Property damage caused by fires in 2019 exceeded $15 billion.
Fires represent one of the most devastating disasters, especially the outbreak of wildfires that have plagued the western half of the country over the past five years. If you have suffered property damage and/or injuries that were produced by a fire, you might be at a loss on how to proceed. Your life appears turned upside down, with no flicker of light at the end of the proverbial tunnel.
At Morgan & Morgan, we help clients make sense of what to do after a fire injury. The most important step, as well as the first step, is to ensure you and your loved ones have not sustained any lingering injuries. Although we think of burns when describing fire injuries, the fact remains that smoke inhalation and the damage that it causes can keep you out of work for weeks, if not months on end.
Then, we have the often complex fire injury claim process. Our fire injury attorneys want you to concentrate on the health of you and your family. Let us take the fire injury claim process off your hands by filing a timely claim that contains more than enough evidence to get you the compensation you deserve.
