Ordering Fire Reports

An experienced attorney will request all fire reports created in connection with a fire loss or burn injury. Through a diligent and careful discovery process, a lawyer will learn whether the defendants and/or an insurance company ordered a private fire report. He or she will find out the name of the individual that completed the fire reports, the company for whom this individual is employed, and the results of the investigation. An attorney should also be able to obtain a copy of any private fire reports that exist, even if you did not ask for one to be completed.
