Fire Science & Negligence

Our experience with fire science litigation goes beyond the defense of products. We defend property owners and service providers such as installers, maintenance professionals and inspectors when it is alleged that their negligent conduct caused or contributed to a fire. We use the same fire science principles and vigorous defense approach as in our product liability cases.

We have been involved in property loss claims against:

  • Landlords
  • Electricians
  • Fire Sprinkler and Suppression Designers, Technicians, and Installers
  • Maintenance Professionals
  • Plumbers
  • Painters
  • and more…

Understand the Client’s Services to Prepare the Best Defense

We recognize that the best defense begins with understanding the client and the service it provides. We familiarize ourselves with the governing standards, including fire codes, suppression system standards, UL standards, ANSI standards, and regulations relating to the placement, use, and labeling of the product or service.

We work alongside the experts during the investigation to establish our credibility with opposing experts and ensure accurate determination of the fire’s area of origin. Whether it’s an explosion or fire loss, if the claimed area of origin can be challenged, then our client can be exculpated.
