When a residential house fire causes serious injury, fatality, or significant property damage, many questions follow. Why did this happen? Is someone to blame? How will I recover?

At Barfoot & Schoettker we are here to get answers to your questions. We work hard to help you obtain the maximum fire loss compensation available for your claim. Below are just a few examples of causes of house fires in America.

  • Faulty electrical systems
  • Flammable furniture or upholstery fires
  • Defective appliances
  • Flammable products
  • Faulty smoke detectors (or absent smoke detectors in rental properties)
  • Construction violations

If you or a loved one was involved in a residential house fire or apartment fire, it is important to remember the insurance company is not on your side. While they may collect information about the fire and your injuries, it is the insurance adjuster's job to minimize the value of the claim as much as possible. At Barfoot & Schoettker we obtain independent investigations that analyze not only the cause of the fire, but also what caused the fire to spread quickly. This is often the factor that causes residential house fires to result in such catastrophic injuries and fatalities.

When your family is struck by the shock and devastation of a residential house or apartment fire, it is important to speak with an attorney right away so that evidence is properly preserved and your rights are protected.
