Get the justice you deserve
Having your home and property destroyed by a fire or other means is a traumatic event that can forever change your life. Losing your home upends your life and your stability. In addition to losing your home, you lose precious possessions that can never be replaced.
Even if you do not lose your home, having your property destroyed by the carelessness of another or ravaged by a fire caused by the actions of another is devastating. If you are a Texas small business owner, farmer, or rancher this destruction can destroy your livelihood.

What should I do if my property was burned or destroyed?
If your property was destroyed or damaged by a fire or other means caused by the carelessness of another, you should:
Gather as much information as you can. Take a video and/or pictures of your property and the damage. Collect the contact information of any witnesses.
If the damages are investigated by the local authorities, work with them. Ask for contact information and report numbers.
Write down any information you can regarding the incident. Make a detailed record of what happened before, during, and after damages.
Contact an experienced Texas property damage attorney. Be prepared to provide the details of what happened as well as any information regarding your damages. Let an attorney determine if you have a claim or not.
Common causes of burned or destroyed property claims include:
Improper maintenance of field-based equipment (e.g., pumpjacks, wind turbines, substations)
Unsafe operational acts (e.g., parking vehicles in the grass while working, working too close to structures)
