Lawyers Protecting the Rights of Those Injured in Workplace Fire and Explosion Accidents

Of all the dangers faced by Illinois workers on construction sites and in industrial settings, an accidental fire or explosion is among the most justifiably feared. Victims may have no time at all to react, and those who survive often suffer severe burn injuries, lung damage from smoke inhalation, toxic exposure, impact and crush injuries from falling debris, or other catastrophic consequences.

At the Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid, our trial-proven personal injury and wrongful death lawyers are prepared to launch an extensive investigation into what — and who — caused the fire or explosion that changed your life irreparably. We handle workers' compensation claims as well as third-party liability claims arising from construction accidents. In addition, we handle auto defect litigation arising from car fires and explosions.

If you have lost an immediate family member in a workplace fire or other accident or if you have suffered serious injury yourself, please contact us to learn how we can help you. Call 630-848-9294 or send us a message online. We represent seriously injured people in Naperville and the western suburbs and throughout Illinois.

Exposing Product Defects and Workplace Negligence

We can help you obtain all available workers' compensation benefits. More significantly in many cases, we can advocate for you by filing a lawsuit against a negligent party that, for example:

  • Sold, marketed or failed to properly maintain defective equipment
  • Did not post proper warnings near fuel tanks, volatile and flammable materials or other hazards
  • Committed other types of negligence leading to an electrical fire, fuel-fed fire or preventable explosion

Seeking All Available Compensation for Burn Victims and Families Left Behind

You can depend on our fire injury attorneys to explore all paths to maximum financial compensation for your medical care and rehabilitation, lost income, pain and suffering, and other damages. We will work with medical professionals, life care planners and others to build an accurate picture of the accident's impact on your long-term costs and needs.
