Fires and explosions can cause catastrophic damage to life, limb, and property and can be emotionally devastating for survivors. When the fire or explosion was caused by a defective product or because of someone’s negligence, it can be even more devastating to the victim and the victim’s family. Burg Simpson can help with your explosion claims or fire claims.
Explosions and fires could be caused by any number of things — accidents, defective products, defective construction, violations of safety codes and guidelines, lack of consumer information, and negligence in storing and handling combustible gases, among others.

What are some of the primary causes of explosions and fires?
Many people are injured, at home or on the job, by faulty equipment, faulty installation, poor maintenance, or other acts of negligence by others. Some occur as a result of vehicle accidents.
How do I determine the cause of a fire or explosion?
That requires trained investigators. Usually local emergency services will send out an investigator to determine the cause. However, it is in your best interests to retain your own legal counsel to review that information with you. Burg Simpson has extensive experience representing victims of accidental explosions and fires. We work with experienced investigators to get to the actual causes of the fires and explosions so we can establish liability and recover damages for our clients.
What sort of damages can I recover?
Depending on the circumstances of the fire or explosion and the types of damages incurred, you may be able to receive compensation for funeral expenses, current medical bills, future medical care, past and future pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of living, inconvenience, emotional trauma, lost wages, future income, loss of consortium, and others.
