San Mateo Explosion and Fire-Related Injury Lawyer

The attorneys at Danko Meredith Trial Lawyers help victims of fires and explosions throughout Calfornia.  We’ve represented clients burned otherwise injured in electrical fires, transformer explosions, explosions of high-pressure vessels, fuel fed fires, fires from underground gas lines, and auto fires.  Find out how we can help you. Call (650) 453-3600 or send us a message.

 

Why Choose Us?

  • We have years of experience with explosion and fire-related injury claims. Our representative cases include settlements for victims of the PG&E transmission gas line explosion in San Bruno, victims of the Butte wildfire, and the victim of the underground electrical transformer explosion in San Francisco.
  • Though we have the resources to take burn and explosion cases to trial, we are skilled negotiators who know how to negotiate fair settlements out of court.
  • We are a contingency-fee based firm. We charge attorney’s fees only if we win a recovery. Otherwise, the client pays nothing for our services.

Why Do You Need a Lawyer?

A personal injury attorney experienced in explosion or fire-related injuries can make your case. A fire attorney gathers the evidence, subpoenas the documents, and analyses the medical issues to:

  • Determine the full value of the case
  • Negotiate with insurance companies or other responsible party to secure fair compensation
  • File the necessary paperwork
  • If necessary, take the case to trial

At Danko Meredith Trial Lawyers, we understand the special needs of fire and explosion victims.

What Causes Explosions in California?

Explosions are almost always the result of cost-saving shortcuts. For example, explosions can result from the failure to properly ground equipment, the failure to properly install fittings, or the failure to protect lines or pipes during construction work. Our lawyers have gone up against utilities, government entities, construction companies, and auto manufacturers in explosion and fire cases.  We have experience in uncovering evidence of:

  • Improper gas line installation
  • Unsafe gas line construction
  • Poor gas pipeline maintenance
  • Unsafe fuel tank placement
  • High pressure tank defects
  • Improperly grounded equipment
  • Careless construction practices

We have access to experts skilled in determining the “cause and origin” of all sorts of explosion and fires, as well as access to medical professionals who are well qualified to testify concerning the fire victim’s injuries and projected course of treatment.
