Western Justice has represented residential home owners and owners of commercial buildings that have sustained smoke damage and structural damage from fire. It is critical to have the proper experts examine a fire scene as soon as possible, and we have relationships with experts in fire cause and origin analysis, electrical engineering forensics, arson forensics, fire restoration and other disciplines necessary to bring well-founded, effective cases when a home or commercial building is damaged by fire.

Negligently started fires can also cause catastrophic damage to crops and timber. Responsible parties and insurance companies will often argue that they should only have to pay for a loss of market value. Western Justice’s attorneys helped to shape Montana Law regarding people’s right to recover the full cost of restoring their land, not just the loss of value.  This law applies to people’s homes as well as family lands. If you think you may have a case for damage in relation to a fire, one of our lawyers will talk with you for free to help you understand your rights and whether you may need legal assistance.


Western Justice handles cases on a contingent fee basis—there is no attorney fee unless there is a recovery for our client.
