As Northern California Wildfires Devastate Area, Rebuilding Begins



Over the past couple weeks, the most catastrophic wildfires in California history have decimated countless homes, displaced thousands, and killed 41 people.


Our hearts go out to all of those who were impacted by the fire. We will be donating and doing what we can to soften the impact and want to encourage those who want to chat with a lawyer to call for an initial consult at no charge.


The battles now begin. For those that lost loved ones, you are still grieving and it is not going to be easy to face considering legal remedies. You will need to decide whether to pursue wrongful death claims. You will need to grapple with questions of who to sue, when your deadlines are and whether to sue at all, and soon.


For those who lost houses or other property, you now need to find a new place to live and perhaps a new job. A tall order for sure. Property damage cases also have deadlines and legal decisions must be made. If you are insured, you will have to deal with insurance adjustors and claims people, and you may need help.


As we've learned from other natural disasters throughout the country, all of this can be a long, grueling process. 

There is a chance that a downed PG&E power line may be partially responsible for some of the damage and deaths, but this still has yet to be determined. In that case, it may be possible to recover some losses from PG&E. But time will tell whether there are other parties at fault.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of these devastating fires, and we will remain dedicated to helping residents recover and rebuild. Contact us if you would like help trying to sift through the legal issues.
