Kansas City Fire & Explosion Injury Lawyers

Fires and explosions can lead to devastating injuries, death, and property damage for those unfortunate enough to be involved in such a tragic event. When the event is caused by another party’s negligence or a product defect, victims and their insurance carriers should not be held responsible for the financial burdens that ensue.

Under the law, you have the right to be fully compensated for damages and losses caused by someone else’s negligence or product defect. At Gates Shields , we know how to investigate and litigate fire and explosion injury and damage claims.

These are often complex cases, so be sure to take advantage of the high-quality counsel we offer. Our legal team has been handling injury cases for clients throughout the Kansas City area since 1980.
