Chaos, Confusion, Fear, and Uncertainty.

There is nothing more disruptive than a severe burn injury. Time stops. The focus is on the immediate present: the next dose of pain medication, the next dressing change, the next procedure, the next skin graft – the brutal reality of horrific pain along with the treatment and recovery that all burn survivors must endure.

Hi, I am Fred Pritzker, an attorney and founding partner of Pritzker Hageman law firm. Our lawyers have experience helping people injured in explosions and fires get compensation and justice. You can contact me at 1-888-377-8900 (toll-free) for a free consultation.

House Explosion
This is the remains of a house that exploded because of a propane gas leak. Our client suffered burns on over 60% of his body. We obtained a $10 million settlement for him, which allowed him to move on with his life and start a new business.

But in addition to the immediate needs and realities, there is crushing fear and uncertainty:  How will the bills get paid? Who’s going to deal with the insurance company? Will there be enough for the future? Are there better treatment options? How are we ever going to get through this and get back to our former lives?

Because we’ve helped so many burn survivors like you and guided them along their journeys to recovery, we understand your physical, emotional and financial needs. And we can help.

That help starts with a meeting. Wherever you are, whenever you’re ready.  We will travel to you, whether you are in the hospital, a rehabilitation center, or at home. Our clients often describe that first meeting as a turning point. It’s no longer just you against the system of providers, insurers and the wrongdoers who caused you harm. You have a partner.

We’ll tell you if you have a case, answer all your questions and explain how the process works. It’s like life coming back into focus.

We’ll also assess your needs. If medical care or equipment is required, we’ll do our best to make sure you get it. If you have problems with insurers or getting bills paid, we’ll take over. If you’re entitled to benefits, we’ll gladly help with that too. We solve problems. We get things done.

Here’s an example. A recently married man was horribly burned in a pipeline explosion. After two months in the burn unit, he was released to daily out-patient care. He suffered from intense pain. His young wife had to perform dressing changes throughout the day. They had no income. And they desperately needed a functional wheelchair to get around their apartment and back and forth to the hospital.

After meeting with them and assessing their needs, we promptly hired a medical case manager. She accompanied our clients to medical appointments, secured more effective pain treatment, worked with insurers to get bills paid, helped them find appropriate and accessible housing, and worked with a prosthetist to obtain a state-of-the-art prosthetic arm and leg. And they promptly received the best wheelchair money can buy.

In addition to helping our clients move on with their lives, we’re also hard at work determining the cause and origin of the fire or explosion that harmed them. This involves working with world-class safety experts, investigating the fire scene, testing failed equipment, identifying the key rules violated by the wrongdoers and, as needed, filing a lawsuit and litigating the case.

The reason we’re so successful representing burn survivors is this: we’re not just burn lawyers; we’re battle-tested trial lawyers. If the companies and their insurers refuse to take responsibility for what happened to you, we’ll enforce your legal and constitutional rights in the courtroom. Read about two of our settlements for people burned in explosions.

I and attorney Eric Hageman work as a team. We have decades of experience and have collected hundreds of millions of dollars on behalf of our clients. Call us at 1-888-377-8900.
