Fire, Electrocution & Explosions


Burn Injury Claims in Highway and Workplace Accidents

Severe burn injuries – those resulting in disfigurement, requiring multiple surgeries to repair, or extending over a substantial portion of the body – can take many years of therapy to achieve the maximum possible recovery, and the pain experienced by the victim in the meantime will challenge anyone.

Our lawyers can assist with the full range of legal, financial, medical, rehabilitative and counseling needs that can arise after extensive injuries by fire, electrocution or explosion. Perhaps most of all, we can protect you from the urge to accept the first substantial settlement offer you receive following the accident or fire. For some burn injury cases, the amount you will need to support your recovery cannot be known until the victim is released from intensive care and completes recovery from the first round of skin grafts and reconstructive surgery. We can help make sure that your damages demand will be sufficient to cover the full extent of your present and future needs.

We handle burn injury cases in St. Louis, Missouri and southern Illinois that result from such causes as the following:

  • Fires in private homes, apartments, condominiums, hotels, or other buildings
  • Electrocution at home or at work
  • Fires caused by defective wiring or malfunctioning heating or drying equipment in residential or workplace settings
  • Workplace burns caused by explosions, scalding or chemical exposure
  • Highway accidents involving fuel-fed fires caused by ruptured gas tanks, fuel lines, or other automotive or truck defects
  • Fire worthiness cased in trailers and mobile homes.
