Our Attorneys Know Fires and Explosions.

Fire & Explosion

After a traumatic fire or explosion, the burns, scarring, and serious injuries can be devastating. But it’s the other wounds—the loss in quality of life, the time spent away from family—that are often overlooked or undervalued. At SHK LAW, we aggressively pursue full justice for the life-altering injuries sustained by fires and explosions.

We Fight Hard for Results

Our Approach

We’re not after a quick win or a minor payout—we’re after a life-changing compensation that recognizes your life-changing injury.

Whether your incident occurred at work, on private property, or elsewhere, our immediate action is the same: with the help of seasoned fire experts, we secure the scene and gather critical evidence.

In fire and explosion cases, time is of the essence. Damaged property is often removed or destroyed within days. By visiting the site of the accident as soon as possible, we ensure that nothing goes undocumented.

While we’re on the ground, we also track down eyewitnesses and obtain copies of any available CCTV footage to bolster our case from the beginning.

After completing an immediate, thorough investigation with our fire and explosives experts, we begin the case-building process on the right foot.

Before we ever file a case, we line up the evidence and strategize on a detailed and case-specific litigation plan. Once a lawsuit is filed, our team shapes the narrative of the case from the outset by leading the charge in discovery and taking the depositions of key witnesses. We often create an accident reconstruction video, to better explain the case and the injuries to the carrier and/or the jury.

Insurance companies know that certain law firms get more and more desperate for settlement, the closer they get to trial. Unprepared to take the case the full distance, these firms lose leverage as trial approaches. As a result, their clients do not get full and fair justice for their injuries.

The opposite is true when SHK is on the case. As a trial firm, we hold all the cards as trial draws near. We have done the work. Our experts are retained and ready to testify. We are trial-ready. There is no need – and no pressure – to accept a lowball offer. This gives us the upper hand and leverage to obtain the maximum value prior to trial. If we do settle before trial, we settle for full and fair justice–not discount justice.

The numbers don’t lie: our outstanding jury verdicts have paved a pathway for excellent settlements. And since we are willing to finance a case all the way through trial, you will not have to accept an unfair payout for your injuries.
