My ford f150 caught on fire in my driveway & it wasn't running. Should I contact a lawyer & what type of lawyer?

We did not have full coverage insurance & were totally unaware of this recall. We did contact ford & we are sending in pictures & the requested documents. I see there have been similar cases & am wanting to know if Ford is accepting responsibility & compensating people for these damages?
