Fires are dangerous and scary events that can severely injure people and completely destroy property. After a fire, victims feel lost and may not know how to fix their property damage and get justice and compensation for their injuries. If you have suffered injury and/or property damage from a fire, you need an experienced attorney to guide you through such a stressful and difficult situation. Mr. Ford Hardy is the perfect attorney to handle your case.

Over his fifty-year career and roughly 5,000 cases, Mr. Hardy has litigated cases involving catastrophic fires. In fact, one of the first major cases of his career involved a fire that burned down the building which housed his law office on Baronne Street in downtown New Orleans.

In that case in 1983, Mr. Hardy represented common tenants against the building owners’ insurance company and the contractor who was working on the neighboring building. After a complex and lengthy dispute, Mr. Hardy successfully recovered on behalf of tenants and victims alike.

In another case, Mr. Hardy represented multiple victims who suffered very serious burns in an apartment fire. Because the burn victims’ medical expenses greatly exceeded the landlord’s insurance, Mr. Hardy instituted a lawsuit in order to get the victims compensation and justice for their injuries. Due to the circumstances of the fire, Mr. Hardy and his team established liability on the utility company for improper inspection of newly leased premises. After years of complex litigation involving many fact and expert witnesses, Mr. Hardy obtained a multi-million dollar award for the victims.

When catastrophic fires and events upend your life and leave you injured, it is important to hire a knowledgeable New Orleans, LA premises liability lawyer like Mr. Hardy. The attorneys at Kiefer & Kiefer will treat you like family during such a difficult time.

How Kiefer & Kiefer Will Handle Your Fire Injury And Property Damage Claims

If you were injured in a fire, first seek medical attention to ensure you are safe and to get the proper treatment you need to recover fully. Next, contact your homeowner’s insurance carrier to open a fire property damage claim. If it was not your property, call your landlord and report the incident and ask them to open a claim with their insurance company.
