The highly skilled legal team at BrewerWood law firm boasts over 50 years of collective experience in representing victims of fires and explosions that occur in homes, apartments, mobile homes, structures, and vehicles. Frequently, determining the cause of a fire/explosion remains uncertain even after official investigations. In many instances, investigators are quick to attribute the fire/explosion to human error when, in reality, some other underlying issue led to the blaze. Time and time again, the attorneys at BrewerWood have revealed that the true cause of a fire/explosion was a faulty appliance, leaking gas valve or piping, negligence of service/utility providers (e.g. gas company or electric company), defective electrical system, or substandard home construction, which can mean that a product manufacturer, gas/electrical company, or other entity can be held responsible. BrewerWood conducts comprehensive investigations into each fire/explosion incident, collaborating with an elite team of experts including fire investigators, utility inspectors, and engineers.
