Building Owner Found Responsible After Fire Severely Burns Victim

The client suffered grievous injuries as the result of being trapped in an apartment building during a fire. The client was the only individual to survive the fire and did so because she heroically hung from a four-story window and awaited firefighters' rescue. Unfortunately, the left side of the client's body that was holding on to the inside of the window was completely burned off. Client has no toes and very little foot on the left side, has no fingers and no left hand and all of the skin on the left side of the body was burned to the bone. Through numerous operations the client has had skin graft transfer that has allowed the client to survive despite the severity of the injuries. Unfortunately, the client has been rendered permanently and totally disabled and the psychological effects of the disfigurement are as serious as the physical infirmities. The client retained the services of Rosen Louik & Perry's law firm of Pittsburgh, PA, The Caring Attorneys. Liability against the building owner was hotly contested as Defendant claimed they were not responsible for arson. (The arsonist was convicted and sent to prison). After years of discovery, this case settled for $1,050,000.00, an amount in excess of available insurance.

Some claims may take years to process and litigate. It is critical that if you've been wounded or disabled in a similar accident that you understand Pennsylvania's Statute of Limitations. Claims must promptly be filed to guarantee legel validity. If you have been hurt like this client, don't hesitate, contact Rosen Louik & Perry of Pittsburgh, PA today for a free claim evaluation.
