Fires & Explosions

New York City Fire Damage Lawyer

Fires and explosions can cause devastating property damage. As bad as the damage can be from the initial blaze or blast, the after-effects smoke and soot leaves behind can be substantial in their own right. This is all in addition to the water damage that may well be the byproduct of the efforts to put out the fire. 

Property owners need to know that their insurance carrier will deliver the promised coverage. Unfortunately, insurance companies often need prodding to do the right thing. That’s where the New York City fire damage lawyers at Sutton & Smyth, LLP come in. 

We’ll fight hard for the settlement your policy has promised.

Possible Property Damage Caused by Fire

Beyond the direct damage, which is often visible for all to see, there may be additional losses hidden from the human eye. 

For example, toxic smoke particles may remain in the air after a fire has been extinguished. These particles can be hazardous to one’s health if inhaled over time. Asbestos or lead may have been disturbed during the fire which could pose long-term health risks if not properly addressed.

Furniture that appears to have survived the fire may not be in as good a shape as a first glance might have suggested. The smoke and soot can embed themselves into home furnishings and within the walls themselves. The consequences can include a weakened structure and foundation

The costs of these damages won’t show up immediately—but they will show up eventually. Having a New York City fire damages attorney in your corner can get you coverage now before it’s too late.

Fighting for the Coverage You Deserve

Property owners may not realize they don’t have to simply accept whatever their insurance company offers. They should not assume that the payout amount is based on an impartial analysis of the damage. It’s not uncommon for an adjuster’s report to be shaded in favor of the carrier—the one who is likely paying their fee.
