Do You Suspect A Water Heater Caused Your House Fire?
Often, a water heater may be the source of a house fire or explosion. Sometimes, people near the water heater may suffer significant burns when a fire ignites due to the water heater. Often there is a defect in the water heater that contributes to or causes a fire to ignite.

We work with industry experts and local experts, including firefighters and emergency responders, to collect evidence.
