Fires and explosions can lead to serious, life-altering injuries that require long-term medical care. In some cases, these incidents can be fatal.

Our Boulder fire and explosion lawyers can help you recover the compensation you deserve.
A fire or explosion can occur due to many factors. Unstable substances, toxic chemical spills, extremely high temperatures, or malfunctioning equipment can lead to these incidents. In many cases, another person’s negligence contributes to these dangerous events.
Common types of injuries in fires and explosions include the following.
If you are involved in a fire or explosion, you can sustain serious injuries, financial hardship, and emotional trauma. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your accident, you may be eligible to file a claim and recover compensation to heal from these losses.
Common damages in fire and explosion claims include the following.
Fire and explosion victims typically have two options to recover this compensation: an insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit. The type of claim you file will depend on how the accident occurred. For example, if you sustained burn injuries in a car accident, you could file an insurance claim or lawsuit against the at-fault driver.
Construction or demolition site owners, government agencies, and property owners may be also liable for your damages, and you could file a lawsuit against these parties. If your injuries occurred due to a defective product, you could file a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer, distributor, or retailer of that product.
