How to Know If You Have a Case

We are here to help you if you have suffered injury and harm after being involved in a fire or explosion accident. We also help people who have lost their loved ones in an incident involving fire or explosion.

You will know whether or not you have a case when you speak to our South Carolina fire and explosion lawyers to determine whether or not liability was involved in your incident. Can we name a liable party? If we can determine that someone was directly responsible for causing the accident in which you suffered harm or lost a loved one, then we can bring a case against them.

We have the experience and skill needed to navigate these cases successfully. We need to know whether or not this accident was something that was preventable. If it was preventable, then the person who caused it is responsible for the harm that they have caused. These cases can be very complicated because it involves a great deal of working with experts in the field of engineers and fire and explosion. For that reason, we strongly suggest getting in contact with our lawyers right away so we can procure this information right away.

We often see these types of incidents happen because someone was working with electrical or HVAC systems. Sometimes, it even has to do with the manufacturing of a product that is defective and caused an accident. In that scenario, the liable party wouldn’t be someone working directly where the accident occurred but instead the person who was supposed to address and repair the defect in the product but did not.

Once we determine that the accident could’ve been prevented, we find out why and then we hold those liable parties accountable for all the harm that you have had to suffer, whether it was bodily harm from being involved in the accident or losing someone that you love in the accident.

Fire and Explosion Accident Cases

A great deal of these fire and explosion accidents happen because of the involvement of electricity and wires, as well as flammable materials such as chemicals or building materials on a construction site. These accidents can happen quickly, so it is often confusing to those who are not familiar with these cases to pinpoint the cause. That’s why you have your South Carolina fire and explosion lawyers working at the case to determine why the accident happened so that we can find out who is directly responsible and hold them accountable.

Here are some of the most common reasons why people are harmed and killed in fire and explosion accidents:

  • There was a gasoline explosion
  • There was an incident involving faulty wiring
  • There was a chemical fire
  • A furnace exploded
  • There was a vehicle fire on a construction site
  • There was a welding accident
  • A gas combusted and exploded

Common Fire and Explosion Lawyers Injuries

These treatments can be quite expensive, which turns their life upside down if they are not financially prepared for such a catastrophic accident, which most people are not.

Here are the most common injuries and damages people face after they have been involved in a fire and explosion incident:

  • Lost vision
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Lung damage
  • Brain damage
  • Smoke inhalation
  • Suffocating

The Compensation You Deserve

If you have suffered an injury in a fire and explosion accident, you will fight for justice in the form of financial compensation when you file a claim against the liable party for your damages and injuries and suffering. If you’ve lost a loved one, then you were going to be filing for damages and suffering related to that.

Please understand that in order for us to tell you definitively what your case is worth, we need to do some research about what happened to you and get a better understanding of what your recovery period is going to look like. You won’t be able to go to a lawyer and find out how much your case is worth during your free, first consultation. If you have South Carolina fire and explosion lawyers promising you a compensation award without doing investigation on your case, they are not the lawyers for you. There’s no way to tell you without knowing everything about your case what your case value is.

The following is a general breakdown of how compensation works for these types of cases and what you might expect in a compensation award.

Wrongful death cases will be compensated for the pain and suffering that your loved one went through before they passed as well as the anguish that you and your family are facing. You’re also going to be able to collect the monetary loss that you’ve suffered since the accident. If there were a lot of medical bills, you should be able to receive that in your compensation, as well as any lost earnings that this person would have provided for your family throughout their lifetime.

If you have survived a fire and explosion accident, we will fight for two types of damages— economic and non-economic.

Economic damages have to do with your financial losses, such as medical bills, lost wages or even lost earning capacity if you aren’t going to be able to do the same type of work that you did before this incident. Lost earning capacity is especially important for labor workers who are going to have to figure out a completely different career if they are unable to return to labor work after they’re done healing. If you have a permanent disability that will prevent you from ever going back to work, you should receive compensation for that, too.

Your non-economic damages refer to your pain and suffering. If you have a loss of quality of life, then you are going to receive compensation for all the ways that has impacted you.

The reason why we don’t want to rush into settling your case is because often we find that we don’t know everything about what happened to you until your doctor says that your treatment is done. Whether that means that you have completed your treatment and you’re always going to suffer from lingering ailments or you are able to return to your previous state of health, we need to know. We don’t want to settle this case and get the official results then find out a year later that you need more treatment to get better. You would not be able to go back and ask for a different compensation result.

Act quickly to reach out to us but understand that, once we take on your case, we will pursue your case the right way. That can take some time, so be patient while we work to get you the fullest justice possible.
