    Helping Burn Victims Recover From their Injuries

    If you have been injured in a fire or explosion in New York, the team at Hach & Rose, LLP can help you. There is a reason why so many people in New York City and across the state have turned to us for help in their greatest time of need, and we are ready to show you why. Our team of compassionate, aggressive, and experienced trial lawyers is ready to help you hold the responsible party accountable for their reckless or negligent actions, and we will not rest until you get the fair compensation you are owed.

    For many people, facing a fire or explosion in their home, business, or motor vehicle is one of their worst fears and nightmares. No matter the size or scope, all fires and explosions can potentially cause catastrophic damage to physical property and even more damage to your body, including death. And while statistics from the U.S. Fire Administration reported the number of fires, fire injuries, and fire deaths has trended down over the past decade, there are still 1.4 deaths and 18.1 injuries per thousand fires in New York. When fires happen at your home or anywhere else, they can cause serious damage and life-altering injuries that may require a lifetime of medical care. From pain management to skin grafts, this type of treatment is extremely involved and expensive, leaving you with tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills and other expenses.

    The cause of residential and non-residential fires or explosions can range from gas leaks or faulty products to chimneys that aren’t properly cleaned or maintained. A report from the U.S. Fire Administration says over half of all residential fires are caused by cooking, fires related to heating coming in a distant second, and accidents behind that. No matter the cause, fires and explosions can destroy everything you own in a matter of minutes and leave you with severe burns or lung damage from smoke inhalation. Sometimes, you may only have a minute to evacuate the premises safely. Unfortunately, whether because they are trying to save personal belongings or extinguish the flames, many people linger longer than a minute and suffer serious consequences.

    The aftermath of a fire or explosion in your home or anywhere else can be emotionally, physically, and financially devastating. Dealing with the shock of losing your home or other property and dealing with injuries or losing a loved one can leave you feeling like your life is over and you have nowhere to turn. Fortunately, there’s hope. If you or someone you know has been injured in a fire or explosion caused by a negligent party, it’s time to take legal action so you can pay for medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses related to your injuries. At Hach & Rose, LLP, our New York City fire and explosion injuries lawyers have dedicated their lives to representing victims of fires to get the financial compensation they need to move forward with their life. To discuss your rights and legal options, call us at (212) 779-0057 and speak with a legal representative.

    Why Do I Need a Fire and Explosion Injury Lawyer?

    Following a fire or explosion, you may be under the impression that you can handle filing a claim and dealing with your insurance company by yourself. Unfortunately, even if you’ve had your policy for decades and know your insurance adjuster personally, fire and explosion cases are incredibly complex because they include huge amounts of property damage and injuries that are almost always severe. In these types of accidents, even something as simple as determining the cause of the fire can be complicated and time-consuming. Whether the fire was caused by a gas leak or a faulty appliance, fires can destroy all evidence making sifting through rubble and finding the cause near impossible without the necessary expertise and experience.

    By hiring a skilled and professional legal representative from the start, they can determine the cause of the fire and then proceed with the necessary steps if the cause was due to someone else’s reckless actions or negligence. These types of accidents are common across New York; in fact, New York ranks in the top three states with the highest number of residential and non-residential fires in the country. From construction sites that aren’t protected or properly zoned to faulty wiring to defective smoke detectors or fire alarms in your building, a personal injury lawyer can help you take legal action against the responsible party to receive compensation so you can focus on your recovery and the well-being of your family.

    How We Can Help

    Depending on the seriousness of the fire, damage to yourself, your family, and your property can exceed hundreds of thousands of dollars, especially if it completely destroys your home. However, all fires have the potential to cause some amount of damage. From burns that vary in severity to smoke inhalation, fire or explosion-related injuries often require months or years of rehabilitation and may keep you from ever returning to your job or career. This pain and suffering is significant and requires fair and complete financial compensation.

    Our attorneys have repeatedly represented hundreds of fire and explosion victims by relentlessly pursuing damages from the responsible party. Contact us today if you have been injured or lost a loved one in a fire due to any of the following:

    • Faulty or defective appliances
    • Construction accidents
    • Other defective products
    • Kitchen fires
    • Chimney fires
    • Propane or natural gas explosions
    • Motor vehicle accidents
    • Defective fire alarms or smoke detectors
    • Restaurant or hotel fires
    • Arson

    The weeks, months, and years after a fire can be full of pain and suffering, with many victims often suffering severe depression or a fear of fire in everyday life. Working to rebuild your life can be a long and painful journey as you go through the wreckage and decide to move forward. You need a helping hand wherever you can get one, especially when it comes to protecting your rights and pursuing the necessary financial compensation to pay for your expenses.

    Recovering Compensation

    Determining fault in your fire or explosion case isn’t always straightforward and, in many cases, may have been caused by several negligent actions from several different parties. Whether your specific fire was caused by an individual, a business, or both, these cases take hours of work consulting with experts and authorities to ensure you take legal action against the responsible party to recover the necessary compensation. At Hach & Rose, LLP, it’s our guarantee to pursue full compensation, never settling for anything less than what you need to pay for:

    • Medical bills
    • Future medical expenses
    • Prescription medication
    • Rehabilitation
    • Lost wages
    • Funeral expenses in wrongful death cases
    • Pain and suffering

    In some cases, we can still pursue damages even if it was determined that the fire was not caused by any person or company’s dishonorable actions. Our attorneys can look into bringing legal action against a liable party for several other reasons, such as faulty smoke detectors or lack of emergency escape route planning from your apartment building.
