Attorney David Shoop of Shoop | A Professional Law Corporation successfully resolved a burn injury case for $3,500,000.00 in April of 2014. This matter involved a residential fire in California with complex forensic and causation issues.

For catastrophic burn injury cases, care should be taken to choose a law firm to represent your interests that has significant experience and has a track record of proven success litigating fire and burn injury cases. Processing a fire scene correctly, coupled with appropriate artifact evidence retention and conducting appropriate discovery are some of the most daunting and complex challenges an attorney can face. As such, there is simply no substitute for experience here – from devising an inspection plan and scene investigation, to the assembly of the best technical and forensic team, to understanding the engineering concepts and evidence preservation – this is all about experience. An attorney not well-versed or experienced with handling fire and casualty cases can miss important things in a forensic investigation. More importantly, an inexperienced attorney may miss important details and do a substandard job deposing the opposition's expert witnesses. Every fire scene is different. Every fire scene is dynamic. Experience matters.
