A History of Success in NJ Fire and Explosion Cases
Our attorneys are passionate about representing workers injured by fires and explosions in the workplace. We have extensive knowledge of accidents and injuries caused by fires and explosions. Louis M. Drazin, who founded this firm in 1947, and Dennis A. Drazin pioneered product liability claims in NJ against automakers, holding them accountable for exploding gas tanks. Over the years, we have obtained impressive verdicts and settlements for those injured in fires and explosions, including those that happened in a workplace.
We work with respected experts to determine the cause of the fire or explosion. Once we fully understand how the accident occurred, we identify all possible sources of liability and work on your behalf to hold negligent parties accountable.
Calculating the Damages for Permanent Disability and Other Types of Injuries
Those who survive a fire or explosion may suffer permanent disability and need expensive, ongoing medical care. We work with certified life care planners to identify the services you will need for the rest of your life because of the accident. We will factor in your anticipated need for hospital stays, surgeries, clinic visits, prescription drugs, physical and psychological therapy, a personal care attendant, remodeling of your home to make it handicapped-accessible, a motorized wheelchair or a specially equipped vehicle. Once we understand the full extent of your needs, we will consult with an economist who will project the total cost. Then we will aggressively pursue the maximum amount of financial compensation possible.
Fires and explosions can occur in nearly any workplace; construction sites and manufacturing facilities are often associated with this type of tragedy but office buildings and other worksites are also associated with this type of accident.
