Subrogation in Fire and Explosions Claims

Keis George pursues fire and explosion subrogation claims arising from large commercial and personal fires caused by the faulty design or manufacture of a product or negligence. These losses range from several thousand dollars for house fires to multi-million dollars for commercial properties. We litigate these matters on behalf of our insurance company clients in state and federal courts throughout the Midwest. We pursue the following fire and explosion subrogation matters:

The collaborative partnership between attorney and expert allows the team to determine the cause and origin of the fire and explosions claim, and ultimately subrogation potential. Because the attorney is involved from the beginning, they have a superior understanding of the facts of the loss – as opposed to getting involved in the insurance claim after findings are established and a report is made.

Subrogation Fire Claims

Investigation of an explosion or fire can be expensive and time-consuming. Protecting the scene of the loss is important because it preserves evidence, reduces the spread of harmful misinformation, and may eliminate a defense of spoliation or tampering by adverse parties. Failure to properly secure a scene can cause significant hurdles when trying to recover on a loss. One of the ways that Keis George maximizes recovery potential is through our Early Involvement Strategy.

Subrogation Explosion Claims and Scene Investigation

Early Involvement is a strategic, investigative process in which our attorneys use every resource at their disposal in an attempt to recover on your claim. When a loss is reported to Keis George, our attorneys make immediate preparations to investigate the loss onsite while our paralegals acknowledge and set up the claim. Once onsite, our subrogation claim lawyers use various tactics to help recover on your claim. Tactics include but are not limited to:
      • Choosing the right expert(s);
      • Protecting the integrity of the scene and preserving evidence;
      • Identifying and interviewing key targets and witnesses;
      • Canvassing the area for additional parties of interest;
      • Placing third parties on notice;
      • Coordinating joint scene examinations; and
      • Obtaining fire reports, 911 tapes, and meeting with investigators.
Our Early Involvement Strategy places insurance company clients in a valuable position because scene preservation is one of the most important factors in building a good, recoverable case. We will capture relevant photographs throughout the investigation process, take witness statements, and properly secure the scene to put you in the best position to recover on your property damage claims.
