Why Choose an Explosion & Fire-Related Injury Lawyer from Danko Meredith?

After experiencing a catastrophic   explosion or suffering a fire-related injury, a survivor or the victim’s family should retain a personal injury lawyer with experience in cases involving explosions and fires. Often, the parties at fault are large corporations or government entities with a team of lawyers ready to oppose the victim’s case. As experienced trial lawyers with decades of experience, our explosion and fire-related injury attorneys know what it takes to hold those parties responsible and recover the just compensation the explosion or fire victims deserves.

Here are a few advantages of choosing Danko Meredith explosion and fire-related injury lawyers to represent you in your injury case in Redwood City:

What Accidents Lead to Explosions in Redwood City, California?

  • Homes or residential buildings
  • Motor vehicle, aircraft, and watercraft
  • Forest and wildlife areas
  • Restaurants and retail businesses
  • Construction sites
  • Industrial areas and buildings
  • Public utilities

According to the U.S. Fire Administration, there were 1.29 million fires in the United States in 2019.

Common Types of Explosion & Fire-Related Injuries in Redwood City

Explosions and fire-related injuries have the potential to inflict intense pain and may result in devastating consequences in a person’s life. Victims may be seriously wounded, and the injuries may lead to extensive medical care, disability, or death. Explosions may produce shrapnel wounds from shredded wood or metal fragments flying through the air at incredible velocity. Some of the most common types of explosion and fire-related injuries include:

  • Second and third-degree burns
  • Blunt-force orthopedic injuries
  • Traumatic head or brain injuries
  • Lacerations from projectiles
  • Eye and ear injuries
  • Traumatic amputation
  • Full-thickness burns
  • Burn-related amputations
  • Permanent scars or disfigurement
  • Infections
  • Wrongful death

Nearly all injuries from an explosion or major fire are severe and require immediate medical attention—followed by ongoing medical care for months if not years into the future. Taking steps quickly to protect your health will encourage quicker healing and prevent the rejection of your claim.

What Damages Are Available after an Explosion in California?

Hospitalization and medical costs are significantly higher for burn victims. Often, insurance coverage is not enough to cover all costs. If surgery is necessary, medical expenses soar. Injured victims should not be responsible for these costs or have to pay any out-of-pocket expenses when their injuries resulted from another party’s negligence. The attorneys at Danko Meredith fight strategically to recover every dollar burn victims deserve after suffering   injuries from fires caused by others in Redwood City, including money to cover:

  • Current and future medical treatment and rehabilitation
  • Lost wages and loss of future earning potential
  • Property damages
  • Physical pain and mental suffering
  • Punitive damages if the conduct that caused the harm was sufficiently egregious

Gathering evidence and facts surrounding explosions usually takes time, so it is essential to contact our firm as soon as possible after sustaining injuries in a fire or explosion. Danko Meredith Trial Lawyers are prepared to build a compelling case to recover the compensation you deserve so you can recover and move forward in your life.
