"I would definitely recommend them."
Lindsey - Washington

“Very professional, and treated me as an equal.”

Just wanted to say thank you to Jed and his team at Strong Law. Not only was I happy with the outcome, but the entire process as a whole. I would definitely recommend this firm to anyone. Thanks again.

Nick S

“Unbelievable work!”

I had a claim involving my own insurance company. I tried to negotiate with them, and they completely denied my claim – two times. I then hired Strong Law, and the change was instant. The insurance company immediately began negotiating, and Jed was able to secure an unbelievably good settlement. I will never again attempt to take-on an insurance company without Strong Law in my corner. Thank you!”

Are You Safe as a Tenant?

People commonly sustain burn injuries in apartment and house fires. Landlords are responsible for keeping their properties in a safe condition. They must also ensure that their properties have fire safety equipment. However, not all landlords do their due diligence. It is possible for a landlord to be held liable for negligence if you are injured as their tenant. This is especially true if the injuries could have been prevented if the landlord had followed safety codes and regulations.

In general, landlords have these responsibilities:

  • Ensuring all electrical wiring is safely installed and in good condition.
  • Properly working and located smoke alarms within the property.
  • Should have a sturdy and safe fire escape.
  • Fireproof doors installed.
  • Regularly serviced fire extinguishers in the building.
  • All escape routes are clear in all shared areas of a building, like hallways or laundry rooms.

Fire extinguishers and smoke detectors are basic and effective fire safety tools, which is why they are required by some local building code regulations.

Even the most basic fire-safety equipment can be defective, which causes it to fail when it is needed most. In addition, there is some equipment that may be dangerous. It does not matter why the fire-safety equipment failed; if you are hurt in a fire due to defective equipment, you may need burn injury attorneys to pursue a lawsuit against the manufacturer.

Even when a fire starts in a tenant’s apartment, there is a possibility that the landlord is liable. Building codes and laws govern what landlords should do to keep tenants safe, regardless of whether it is public or private housing. Even if you think the fire was your fault, you should still contact burn injury lawyers. You need a knowledgeable burn injury lawyer to hold a negligent landlord accountable for your injuries if they are caused by an unsafe home.

The Difference Between First, Second, and Third-Degree Burns

It is not unusual to hear people speak about first, second, and third-degree burns when talking about skin injuries that result from an explosion or fire. Oftentimes, people do not understand the significance of these descriptors.

First-Degree Burns

A first-degree burn is when only the outermost layer of skin is damaged. These burns are like sunburns and normally do not require significant medical attention.

Second-Degree Burns

Second-degree burns indicate that the skin’s top and second layers (the epidermis and the dermis) have been burned. Often these injuries result in blisters and appear dry, with white coloring. Occasionally these injuries need skin grafts for healing.

Third-Degree Burns

Third-degree burns happen when there has been severe damage to the outer and the second layer of skin. Skin grafts will be necessary for healing, and longer-term medical care is also likely.

Work-Related Burns

If you or someone you know has been seriously burned in a work-related fire or explosion, you also have the filing of workers’ compensation claims to contend with. Often insurance companies will do all they can to avoid payment and limit your workers’ compensation benefits.

At Strong Law, the work-related burn injury lawyers in Eugene, OR, our attorneys are not intimidated by big insurance companies or their lawyers. Our commitment is to fight for our clients to get every dollar of compensation they need and deserve.

What Are Your Hours?

Strong Law is open five days a week between 9am and 5pm. In addition, we offer after hours return calls, weekend calls, and online chat.

What Kinds Of Cases Are Personal Injury?

Call us to know for sure, but a good rule of thumb is when an “accident” that happened to you because of the acts of or misdeeds of another party. Examples are: Auto accidents; motorcycle accidents; semi-truck accidents; wrongful death; medical malpractice; slip, trip and fall; boating accidents, faulty equipment, nursing home abuse; and many others.

Will I Be Charged To Consult Or Talk With You?

No, not ever. Strong Law is a contingency personal injury firm offering specialized experience along with access when you need it. Our goal is to gain the best settlement and provide comfort in the process, so easy access to us is part of our best practices.

What Does Contingency Mean?

Contingency in a legal matter means an expense to the client based on the outcome of a future event or circumstance which is possible but cannot be predicted with certainty. Said another way, Strong Law gets paid only if your case settles.

Can You Give Me An Assessment Of My Case?

Absolutely. While we cannot guarantee anything, nor do we imply a settlement, our willingness to take your case (and do it on contingency) is our voice that we feel your case has strong merit. After speaking with you, we can provide a merit assessment over the phone. However, we caution that accepting your case does not promise anything, your outcome is reflected in the law firm you choose.

What Should I Do If I’m Having Problems, Like Their Insurance Company Is Calling Me?

Always secure an attorney first. If you sign up with Strong Law now, you can advise their insurance company that you have representation and give them our name and contact information. From that time forward, they should not be contacting you again; it’s the law. If you do not sign with an attorney, like Strong Law, you will need to speak with them and represent yourself to resolve your injury. We strongly urge against this; insurance companies are skilled at ensuring their best interests over yours.

What Are Common Reasons For Insurance Injury Denials?

Make sure you receive medical treatment as soon as possible after an accident, otherwise insurance may argue your pain is from an unrelated incident.Insurance companies will be going out of their way to find some proof that the accident was your fault. Don’t be intimidated.If you have preexisting medical conditions that make you more likely to suffer an injury, it is not uncommon for insurance agencies to deny claims based on this.

How Long Does A Case Take To Settle?

It depends on many factors like medical care, future needs, evidence, proof of liability, and many others. Some cases take months while others can last a couple years. Ultimately, our goal is to represent you and what is going to be best for you in the long run.

Why Can Cases Last Years?

Because the law dictates it. There are many layers to make sure the insurance companies treat you with optimal care. For example, there will be time spent for medical treatments you might need. There is time to gather the needed medical reports and discover any long term impacts this injury will have on your life today and into the future. There is time for the other side to review our demands, research, and respond as well. It can feel like a long time, but we follow the law and strategize for the best benefit to you. We are with you the whole time.
