Caring & Dedicated Personal Injury Representation
There are different types of fire accidents that occur and the resulting injuries can vary. The accident types include:
- Chemical fires
- Workplace-related fires
- Auto accident explosions
- Office fires
- Home fires
Objects coming into contact with flames, faulty electrical wiring, chemicals coming in contact with heat or other chemicals, and even arson lead to very serious injuries. Depending on the accident, it may fall under an insurance claim. For instance, a fire in your home may fall under your homeowner’s insurance, while a chemical accident in the workplace may fall under workers’ compensation.
While insurance coverage is good to have, the question that comes up is whether or not the compensation that is offered by the insurance companies is enough. Those that accept initial settlements from their insurance companies tend to not get the proper compensation.
