Fire and explosions can occur for numerous reasons, such as property owners failing to address fire hazards, obstruction to fire exits or neglecting smoke detectors.

All of these factors have one underlying factor in common- they could have been avoided if the proper safety measures had been taken.

It can be easy to overlook the cause of a fire when you are suffering severe injuries that require immediate medical attention. That’s why the specialized, experienced and knowledgeable attorneys at Fellows Hymowitz Rice are here to help.
