Our Jackson attorneys frequently choose cases that other firms are hesitant to take on or refuse to handle because of their complexity. We aren’t afraid of a challenge and never settle for anything other than the best possible outcome – every single time.
What Causes Fires & Explosions?
A fire or explosion may be caused by negligence, a defective product, faulty wiring, carelessness, safety violations, or intentional wrongdoing. It may occur at work, at home, or even on the road. Regardless of its cause, it may leave one or many victims suffering the consequences.
Identifying the cause of an explosion or fire can be a challenge, but ‘Maggio | Thompson, LLP has experience in these cases. We work with investigators and fire damage experts to confirm the origin of the blaze or the cause of the explosion, which will shed light on who is responsible.
Finding the Right Source of Compensation
When we can determine the cause of a fire or explosion, our Jackson injury lawyers can find the right source or sources of compensation. For work-related incidents, this may be workers’ compensation, which is provided regardless of fault. For others, this may be the individual or company whose wrongdoing or negligence was to blame.
In taking on a personal injury or wrongful death case involving a fire or explosion, we will seek financial compensation for all economic and non-economic damages, such as:
- Medical expenses
- Future medical care, therapy, or treatment
- Permanent scarring or disability
- Lost wages and benefits
- Loss of future earnings
- Property damage
- Emotional trauma
- Punitive damages, in some cases
- Funeral/burial costs, for wrongful death actions
