According to the American Burn Association, a fire-related injury occurs every thirty minutes, many of which result in fatality.
Burn injuries are extremely traumatizing. Burns are one of the most painful, disabling injuries, often resulting in disfigurement requiring extensive, expensive reconstructive surgeries and skin grafting. Many burn victims endure lengthy, painful treatments in the healing process, including frequent debridement of the affected areas and skin harvesting and grafting from unharmed parts of the body.
The knowledge that many of the 2.4 million yearly burn injuries in the United States could have been prevented can be emotionally and mentally unsettling.
Fires start for many preventable reasons. Propane or LP gas can leak undetected into a home or office building and explode. Furnaces and water heaters can malfunction due to improper maintenance or design. Defective electrical or heating products are not recalled in time to prevent accidents. Some products will either burn hotter or more rapidly than expected and start on fire easily. Campfires or bonfires burn out of control and spread. Gas cans or other receptacles are not designed with simple safety mechanisms. Some clothing is extremely flammable, causing deep burns if even a small flame comes in contact with the fabric.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a fire due to a gas leak or explosion, a defective product, or the negligence of another person, you are entitled to compensation.

"A neighbor said he saw sparks, but we didn’t see any fire. I ended up in the hospital for months. A friend of mine recommended this firm. David did a lot of research, hired just the right experts and got all the information. They did a good job for me. They communicated well and told me what was going on. I don’t know of anyone that could have done better. They turned out to be very good friends."
"I needed the direction and Christopher Hoffer provided that. He is very calm, well organized, and very capable. I still have pain from the car accident today but he helped me get a settlement from the insurance company to cover auto and medical expenses and was very supportive. He did a great job for me and he’ll do the same for you."
"Sending you a friendly reminder! It has been 10 long years since my 1st accident. I know, hard to believe! And I wanted to express to you, a huge thank you David! I don’t know where I would be, or what the outcome of all that has happened, that could have been….without you. Thank you so much for being so kind to me, and caring for me; which has produced a great friendship! Know that I appreciate the role you have played in my life."
"Thank you just doesn’t come close to what you deserve for everything you have done for me. Over two years ago I came in not having a clue what to do. You listened to me, you cared for me, and you fought for me. And you continued to fight for me. I cannot express the appreciation and gratitude I have for you. You are a man of character and it shows in your work. It has been a privilege and honor to have met you and to have you on my side."
"Words cannot express the amount of gratitude and a million thank you’s to you. What a pressure of relief off me! These past years have been a struggle for my family and I. I will hold you in the highest regards and nothing but faith and happiness to both of you. You have fought long and hard for us! I guess my upbringing and personality were never to sue or properly bring justice. But the morning after the crash and years of pain tends to change your fight. I’m a firm believer that certain people pass through your life for a reason. Thank you so much again!"
"I would like to thank you for all you have done for me. My case was complicated having the two insurance companies in the beginning. I was very concerned about how that would be resolved. This has been a long hard process. I really appreciate everything you have done for me."
