What Sets Us Apart ― The Shoop Difference

If you or a loved one has suffered a catastrophic burn injury, you may wonder if there are any legal options available, particularly if a defective or dangerous product is to blame for the injury. Before you retain a lawyer or law firm to represent your interests, however, it is important to ask the following questions:

1. How Many Fire Scenes Has The Attorney Or Law Firm Processed?

The burn injury lawyers at SHOOP | A PROFESSIONAL LAW CORPORATION have processed countless fire scenes over the past decade, ranging from multimillion-dollar commercial property damage cases to multiple-fatality residential fires. We have experience in all manner of structural fires, and we are experienced professionals in partnering with fire departments and our retained experts with regard to complicated forensic issues and cause and origin analysis.

2. What Experts Do They Use?

Fire scenes are dynamic scenes, meaning that critical evidentiary items can be displaced or hidden during firefighting activities. This is one reason why it is so important to process the scene as soon as possible and assemble a team of qualified engineering experts and cause/origin experts. An attorney who is not experienced in dealing with and processing fire scenes will likely not know which experts to bring in and something will be missed ― which could significantly affect your recovery for your burn-related injuries.

3. Is The Attorney Experienced In Fire Scene-Related Evidentiary Issues?

Attorney David Shoop is a member of the National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA) Research Section and has fought numerous court battles over the years regarding proper evidentiary and scientific methodology in fire cases. He has processed countless fire scenes and has represented many burn injury victims over the past decade. In addition, he has prepared numerous lectures with regard to NFPA 921 standards, which are standards for science-based forensic analysis and investigation of fire scenes and explosions.

Often, judges themselves need to be educated with regard to NFPA 921 standards application and scientific and forensic issues regarding fire investigation and cause and origin determination.

Do not make the mistake of trusting your case to a law firm that has little experience in fire and burn injury investigation. Go with the law firm that possesses superior experience, superior knowledge and a history of successful results ― go with SHOOP | A PROFESSIONAL LAW CORPORATION.
