Fire and Arson Cases

Denver Fire or Arson Case? We’ve got Your Denver Insurance Attorney.

Fire and arson cases can involve complicated scientific questions as well as challenging legal issues. At Giometti & Mereness P.C. in Denver, Colorado, we represent clients in liability and insurance disputes involving both accidental fires and cases where arson may be involved. Contact us to discuss your case with an experienced Denver insurance attorney.

Recognizing the fact that fire cases often involve difficult issues of proof, we work with experts from the initial inception of an action to investigate allegations thoroughly. Our attorneys interview witnesses, examine investigation reports, conduct examinations under oath, and review all documents to determine whether the evidence and law support denial of insurance coverage or support a claim to recover damages.

Our firm is familiar with the nationally recognized guidelines in fire and explosion cases, such as NFPA921 Guide for Fire and Explosion Investigations. In reviewing fire claims and pursuing litigation of fire cases, we scrutinize the facts with these guidelines in mind. Whether representing an insurer in a subrogation claim, handling a claim where an incendiary origin is suspected, or defending an insured where negligence is alleged, our goal is to maximize the possibility of success by making sure that a competent and thorough investigation supports our client’s position.

With decades of legal experience with fire and arson cases, our lawyers appreciate the need for methodical and rapid investigation in any insurance dispute. Judges and attorneys know us as seasoned litigation attorneys who will vigorously protect the rights of our clients. Do not take a risk by hiring a lawyer who is inexperienced in fire investigation and litigation.
