Dallas Fire Injury Attorney
The United States Fire Administration reports more than 1.3 million fires annually. These incidents occur for a variety of reasons but result in tens of thousands of injuries. If you were injured in a fire that broke out on a property that belongs to someone else, you may be able to bring a premises liability claim to hold the property owner liable and recover compensation for your injuries and other damages.
At The Benton Law Firm, we know how disruptive any kind of injury can be to your life and your family. Fires can be especially traumatic, with severe injuries that often have lengthy recovery times and lifelong effects. If you have suffered injuries from a fire on someone else’s property, our Dallas fire attorneys can help you get the compensation you need to pay your medical bills, lost wages, and other damages.

Why Do I Need a Fire Lawyer?
Property owners have a responsibility to maintain safe properties. The legal term for this responsibility is duty of care, which is an essential component in determining liability. Different types of property owners, such as business owners or landlords, have different levels of care that they owe to their customers or visitors. To bring a successful premises liability claim, you need to understand these legal definitions and how they apply to your case. The experienced Dallas premises liability attorneys at The Benton Law Firm have the practical experience to understand and interpret all the legal factors that will affect your claim. With our help, your case will move faster and more efficiently, and we will fight to get you the most compensation the law allows.
A complication that we commonly see in fire cases is that there are multiple parties involved, which can make your claim for relief more complex. The landowner will likely bring their insurance company into the matter, and insurance companies can be difficult to deal with. While insurance adjusters may appear to be on your side, keep in mind that they work for the person who was responsible for the fire that hurt you. This is why it is essential to have a lawyer on your side, representing your interests while you rest and recover from your injuries. At The Benton Law Firm, our attorneys deal with the insurance companies so you don’t have to, and we will work tirelessly to get you the treatment and compensation you need.

The Truth About Fire Cases
Thanks to our hardworking first responders, fires are no longer a leading cause of death in the United States, but injuries sustained in fires are still frequent, traumatic, and painful, and are often accompanied by long recovery times. If you have been injured in a fire, you are likely wondering when you can get your life back. Being unable to work adds to the concerns over your health; you are probably worried about the financial aspect of your injuries and how you’re going to support yourself and your family and pay for your growing medical bills. While we wish you were not in this position, we do have some good news for you: we can help.
You may be eligible for compensation for your injuries and other damages by bringing a premises liability claim against the owner of the property where the fire occurred. Common fire-related injuries we can help you with include:
- Respiratory injuries
- Pain and suffering
- Slips and falls suffered when fleeing the fire
- Long-term disability
At The Benton Law Firm, our premises liability lawyers have helped our clients recover compensation for these injuries and others. Our Dallas fire injury attorneys will aggressively pursue justice on your behalf, so you get the relief you deserve. You may be eligible for compensation for your medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, lost earning potential, rehabilitative costs, disability and disfigurement, and pain and suffering. If your loved one passed away as a result of a fire on someone else’s property, we can help you pursue a wrongful death claim to recover compensation for medical expenses, funeral expenses, loss of income, loss of emotional support, and more.
You might be wondering how the property owner can be held liable for the fire that hurt you if they were not present during the fire. Property owners are responsible for maintaining their premises, which includes taking precautionary measures to prevent fires and having systems in place to manage any fires that might occur. Property owners may be held liable for many circumstances that cause fires, including:
- Electrical malfunctions
- Gas leaks
- Chemical fires
- Residential fires
- Defective smoke detectors
- Defective sprinkler systems
- Commercial fires
- Appliance fires
Our team of experienced Dallas fire attorneys can help you get compensation for these scenarios and many others. While we cannot guarantee results, we make every effort to win each case we take on for clients just like you.
