On average in the United States someone dies in a fire nearly every 2 hours, and someone is injured every 23 minutes. The United States has one of the highest fire injury and death rates in the industrialized world. Next to motor vehicle accidents, burn injuries are the leading cause of accidental death in the United States.
What should you do after a fire has destroyed your home or business? The first thing you need to do is preserve evidence of what you have lost and, if possible, of what started the fire. Frequently, the evidence about how a fire started is lost during the cleanup process. After a fire, the sooner you consult with an experienced lawyer, the more evidence can be preserved.
