Shoop | A Professional Law Corporation
-- Los Angeles Product Liability Attorney David Shoop was recently successful in resolving a burn injury case for $3,500,000. The product liability matter stemmed from a residential fire that occurred in California. Attorney Shoop, of Shoop | A Professional Law Corporation, reached the successful case result in April 2014, despite the fact that the defense aggressively disputed complex issues related to the forensics and causation of the fire.
In this product liability case, Attorney Shoop worked on behalf of his client to show that the other party in the case was responsible for the fire that caused his client’s burn injuries. The defense, however, vigorously contested this claim. The defense challenged the forensic investigation that looked into the fire’s origin and cause, and it also challenged the results of the artifact evidence examination, as well as the results of the electrical mapping. While this could have served as a serious barrier to the plaintiff’s ability to secure compensation, Attorney Shoop did not allow these challenges to stand in the way of his client. After providing effective legal representation, the lawyer was able to obtain much-deserved compensation for the burn victim.
When it comes to the investigation and processing of fire scenes, Attorney Shoop draws from years of experience. He maintains membership in the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), and he has lectured on the application of NFPA 921 standards (and evidentiary issues related to these standards) on numerous occasions. Furthermore, the lawyer provides consulting nationwide on matters related to fire origins and causes. In order to help advance the ability of lawyers to properly represent their burn injury victims in cases such as these, Mr. Shoop has written guides that cover evidence preservation and product liability litigation. He has also established the “Four Golden Rules for Fire Scene Investigation.”
Because the process of investigating a fire scene and proving fire causation is so complex, it is vital that burn injury victims from these fires seek representation from an experienced attorney who truly understands these issues. The lawyer needs to be able to process the scene correctly, properly retain artifact evidence, and sufficiently carry out the discovery process. The attorney should have also established a history of success in the litigation of these types of cases. When it comes to fire and burn injury cases, the lawyers at Shoop | A Professional Law Corporation have in-depth understanding of the various technical issues involved fire scene investigation and the litigation that follows.
