Explosion Attorney Eric HagemanAttorney Eric Hageman

“I’m Eric Hageman, one of the partners at Pritzker Hageman and an attorney on our award winning burn injury legal team. I help injured people and their families ensure that wrongdoers are held accountable for the harm they have caused in fire, electrical and other burn injury cases.

I know how difficult and scary it can be to find the right lawyer after you or a loved one has been seriously injured. But I am here to help. I have spent my career fighting for justice on behalf of my clients and I have a commitment to helping victims of fires and explosions obtain accountability for their life-altering injuries.

Even if you aren’t ready to hire a lawyer, I am happy to talk to you about your case and answer any questions you have about what lies ahead. If you decide to hire me, my work will often begin at the scene, side by side with investigators, experts, and engineers. I will also be a fierce advocate for you as your case moves through the legal process, guiding you every step of the way.

Years of experience handling complex burn injury cases has taught me that these cases require a lawyer with the specialized knowledge and the legal acumen to fight against large corporations and insurance companies. But I have learned there is something just as important as legal know-how: the ability to listen to my clients. Only by understanding what my clients truly want and need can I work together with them to achieve the best possible outcome.”

A lawsuit isn’t about making money; it’s about paying bills, having money to live on, making up for lost wages, getting necessary treatment, being reimbursed for horrible pain, suffering, emotional distress, and disfigurement, holding wrongdoers accountable, and making sure what happened to you doesn’t happen to anyone else.”

Our firm has been widely recognized as one of the top law firms in the country for complex litigation. Our attorneys have appeared on, and been quoted in, the New York Times, Bloomberg, CNN, CBS News, NBC News, National Public Radio, The Atlantic and many other news organizations.

Legal Action After A Burn Injury Handbook
Download the PDF: The Pritzker Hageman burn injury legal team, in partnership with the Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors, have put together a handbook covering important topics related to legal action after a burn injury.

You’ve never been through something like this before. You need to understand how the legal process works, what’s expected of you, how long it will take, and so many other things. In addition to everything else, we’ll answer your questions and protect you as you move forward with your life.

We represent burn victims and their families in some of the biggest, most complicated cases in the United States. Our clients have been harmed by gas and pipeline explosions, industrial and commercial fires, residential fires, motor vehicle fires, flammable fabrics, electrical fires, steam burns, electrocutions and just about any other situation in which people are burned or suffer concussive injuries from explosions.

We Hold Wrongdoers Accountable

No person would ever choose to endure life-changing burns no matter how much money is paid to them. This is about getting fair compensation from a corporate wrongdoer because you need money to pay bills, make up for lost wages, and get necessary treatment and medical equipment. You have the right to get reimbursed for horrible pain, suffering, emotional distress, and disfigurement. By holding company wrongdoers accountable, you are helping to make sure what happened to you doesn’t happen to anyone else.

We Support the Burn Survivor Community

We Have the Experience and Resources to Take on Complex Cases Against Major Corporations and Insurance Companies

To obtain financial compensation in fire and explosion cases, it is essential that victims of such accidents work with a law firm with the experience and resources to pursue claims against major corporations and insurance companies. With over forty years of experience between them helping clients in fire and explosion cases, Eric Hageman and Fred Pritzker’s team have represented injured people seeking justice in more than twenty different states. In the process, they have obtained hundreds of millions of dollars in damages for their clients.

One Family’s Story…

Client Testimonial

“We lost everything… but the amount of help we received from Fred and his law firm was incredible. No amount of money can replace what we lost. I went through 15 to 20 surgeries. But I’m still alive and I get to spend the rest of my life with my family and we’re going to be happy the rest of our lives.

We’ve never had to deal with anything legal before. Everyone at the law firm was super helpful and it didn’t matter what time of day it was. We could call Fred and he’d have an answer for us. They were all super helpful and they kept us in the loop with our case.

Before the case was settled, we had no income. My wife couldn’t go back to work. Fred stepped in and guided us to a bank that loaned us the money we needed. And the law firm was extremely helpful in finding us a new place to live. We were under so much stress and they helped in so many ways.

The settlement itself happened sooner than we thought. But before it did, there was a really cool wheelchair that I needed and insurance didn’t want to pay for it. Fred intervened on our behalf and the wheelchair arrived. He wrote a letter explaining why I needed it. 

As soon as the injuries happened, people were pressuring us to hire this lawyer or that lawyer and we received visits from some of them. They didn’t reassure us at all. They just pressured us and told us we needed to sign up with them. Well, we make our own decisions. We don’t need to be pressured.

Fred’s law firm was different. We did our research and we actually called them based on their experience. They flew out right away to see us and they listened. They asked us what kind of lawyer we were looking for. It was a really good vibe right from the beginning and now Fred and Eric are like family to us. They’ve flown out to see us 10 or 15 times — if not more — and they continue to help.

I think about what happened to me every day, but I don’t have to deal anymore with fears of dying or having no income, which is awesome. They’ve helped us get back on our feet.”
