Fires and Burn Injuries
While many never think it will happen to them, every 19 seconds a fire department responds to a fire somewhere in the United States. Those who experience the trauma of a fire have the difficult task of literally rebuilding their lives whether it involves a house fire or a severe burn injury. Unfortunately, many times the insurance companies may be difficult to work with. Also insurance companies may be hesitant to cover all of the losses that you have incurred. At The Higgins Firm, our experienced Nashville fire loss and burn attorneys will work alongside you to make sure that you recover what you deserve for your losses. We want to help you rebuild your life.
Those who have suffered severe burn injuries know that burns can be more than skin-deep. Third and fourth-degree burns severely damage underlying tissues beneath the skin and can lead to disfigurement. Additionally, smoke inhalation during a fire can lead to serious bronchial problems. Sadly, those most vulnerable to suffering injury or death in a fire are children younger than 5 years old and adults over 65 years old. Many times the costs of medical bills and the toll of mental anguish can pile up causing further problems.
Fires can occur for several reasons many in your house or in on the job that may include items containing defects and improperly maintained property. When a household item or an item used on the job contains defects that caused a fire to break out or if the fire was caused by carelessness of workers that maintain the work site, the company that produces the item or the worker that is responsible for making sure everything is in working order, can be accountable for the injury you or someone you care about received. This means they are accountable for not only the visible injury but also any mental or emotional injury and any damage done to your house or place of business.How can the Higgins Firm Help You With a Claim Involving Fire Loss or Burn Injuries?
