A fire will often destroy evidence that could reveal the story behind the accident. Did patrons of the casino find the fire exit blocked by debris? Was defective automotive design responsible for the car crash? Did the negligence of a contractor cause the gas explosion?
Burn injury and fire accident claims
At Harris & Harris Lawyers in Las Vegas, our attorneys represent clients in cases involving burn injuries and inhalation injuries resulting from fire accidents. Second and third-degree burns are catastrophic injuries. Victims in the hospital burn unit suffer excruciating pain and face years of surgeries. They often are disabled by post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD) and constantly reminded of the trauma by disfiguring scarring.
The medical expenses, lost wages and, in the case of a fatal fire accident, loss of emotional and financial support must be carefully calculated. The outcome of a personal injury claim or wrongful death lawsuit resulting from a burn injury case will determine whether survivors can rebuild their lives. Our lawyers have the skill to build a strong case and are supported by a firm with the resources to conduct a thorough investigation. At Harris & Harris Lawyers, our record of success in recovering large settlements and verdicts is the result of experience, hard work and commitment to our clients’ interests.
