Recovering Damages After a Fire

If you've suffered injuries or lost a loved one in a fire then you understand that the physical, emotional and financial impact can be tremendous. You may not realize, however, that someone else's negligence could be the cause of your suffering. The danger presented by a fire is often compounded by buildings that do not meet local building and state fire codes. Thus, property owners or managers may be liable for damages caused by a fire if their negligence allowed the fire to spread and injuries or fatalities to occur.

If you've been hurt in a New Jersey or New York fire, the damages to which you may be entitled may include money for medical bills, lost income, out-of-pocket expenses, funeral expenses, and pain and suffering.

A New York or New Jersey premises liability lawyer will investigate your case and determine whether there is a possible cause of action against the building or manager. The experienced New Jersey and New York premises liability attorneys of Hofmann & Schweitzer will work hard to help you recover fair and just damages for the injuries you incurred because of a property owner or manager's negligence.
