Members of the Moore & Ogletree team have represented corporations and individuals connected with catastrophic, high-profile fires and explosions
We have significant experience in fire, explosion and electrical contact litigation involving a variety of products and services provided by our clients.
Choosing the Right Strategy
We understand that in today's culture, any involvement or association with a tragic accident can threaten a company's core business. Fire and explosions are tragedies, which often result in severe injuries, loss of life and destruction of property.
Subsequent lawsuits are emotionally charged and require a rapid, focused response to properly address these issues.
We have developed successful strategies to address unexpected and unique challenges posed by fire and explosion cases. These cases involve not only traditional legal issues and damages such as products liability, negligence, workers’ compensation, wrongful death, property damage and business interruption but also require knowledge of chemical and industrial processes, cause and origin, building design, fire suppression, smoke toxicity, criminal acts, OSHA and other regulatory agencies and the resulting media coverage.
