Burn patient treatment“This was the worst thing that ever happened.  I just kept thinking: “How are we going to get through this?”

I was three months pregnant when the explosion destroyed our house, killed our dog, and burned my husband so badly that we weren’t sure he would survive. The medical bills alone were over $1,000,000. I just kept thinking: “How are we going to get through this?”…..

Our Pritzker Hageman attorneys made all the difference. They took care of everything. We could not have moved on with our lives without them.”

We represent burn victims and their families in some of the biggest, most complicated cases in the United States.

We Hold Wrongdoers Accountable

No person would ever choose to endure life-changing burns no matter how much money is paid to them. This is about getting fair compensation from a corporate wrongdoer because you need money to pay bills, make up for lost wages, and get necessary treatment and medical equipment. You have the right to get reimbursed for horrible pain, suffering, emotional distress, and disfigurement. By holding company wrongdoers accountable, you are helping to make sure what happened to you doesn’t happen to anyone else. Read about two of our settlements for injured clients.

Through our partnership with the Phoenix Society for Burn Survivor’s we donate our legal knowledge and our staff’s time. Our law firm has also committed to providing $100,000 in direct financial support to the Phoenix Society to help them better meet the needs of burn survivors and their families throughout their recovery journeys.

Explosion Attorney Eric HagemanAttorney Eric Hageman

Hi, my name is Eric Hageman. I help people and their families ensure that wrongdoers are held accountable for the harm they have caused in fire and explosion cases.

I know how difficult and scary it can be to find the right lawyer after you or a loved one has been injured in a fire or explosion. But I am here to help. I have spent my career fighting for justice on behalf of my clients and I have a commitment to helping victims of fires and explosions obtain accountability for their life-altering injuries.

Even if you aren’t ready to hire a lawyer, I am happy to talk to you about your case and answer any questions you have about what lies ahead. If you decide to hire me, my work will often begin at the scene, side by side with investigators, experts, and engineers. I will also be a fierce advocate for you as your case moves through the legal process, guiding you every step of the way.

Years of experience handling complex fire and explosion cases has taught me that these cases require a lawyer with the specialized knowledge and the legal acumen to fight against large corporations and insurance companies. But I have learned there is something just as important as legal know-how: the ability to listen to my clients. Only by understanding what my clients truly want and need can I work together with them to achieve the best possible outcome.
