Burn Injury Attorneys for Injured Workers

Fires and explosions can be catastrophic, claiming lives or causing severe burns and other debilitating injuries. Frequently these events occur without warning, leaving survivors and their families in the dark about what happened and why. Robins Kaplan has been litigating severe fire and explosion cases for more than fifty years. Let us put our knowledge and experience to work for you.

Robins Kaplan is not your typical personal injury law firm. As a nationally-recognized litigation firm, we take on many of the most severe and complex explosion and burn injury cases in the United States.

With more than 225 attorneys and seven offices across the country, we bring top-tier legal talent and substantial resources to all of our cases. We will not be outworked or outmatched in the courtroom.

We pursue justice and financial security for severely injured individuals and their families. Unlike many firms, our burn injury lawyers are not handling hundreds of cases at a time. This focus on a relative few serious, high-stakes cases allows us to give our clients the personal attention and the aggressive, relentless advocacy they deserve.

Robins Kaplan has made history representing plaintiffs in all kinds of cases, from taking on the tobacco industry and recovering more than $6.5 billion, to leading a consortium of law firms that secured more than $77 million for victims of the I-35W bridge collapse. Our proven track record makes us a formidable opponent in litigation and at trial.

Robins Kaplan is a true advocate. We take on the risk and the cost of litigation so you do not have to. We pursue culpable parties so that you can focus on healing and moving forward. From day one, our lawyers will be by your side, advocating for you when you need it most. You will not see a bill from us unless we obtain a recovery in your case.

To contact a personal injury lawyer for a free case evaluation, please complete our free case evaluation form above. Tell us what happened and we will help you decide what to do next.

Our attorneys handle matters primarily in Minnesota, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
