What are my fire damages?
When someone is affected by a fire, there are many types of losses, including:
Homes and other structures
Personal property/contents of the home
Trees and landscaping
Evacuation/Alternative Living Expenses:
Hotel/food/gas during the evacuation
Rent and additional costs for temporary living
Personal income (including loss of sick and vacation days)

Mental anguish, inconvenience, disturbance, and annoyance
Why do I need an attorney?
When utilities and their contractors wrongfully cause fire and damage to others, they also use their immense resources to fight hard to limit payouts to everyone who experienced damages or injury. Our wildfire attorneys aggressively litigate to show that the company is responsible and to assess the real worth of your damages and distress as a result of this catastrophic case.

If I have insurance why should I join?
What if I do not have insurance?
California law permits recovery for both uninsured and insured victims. If the damage has been caused by the negligent or reckless action of a company and you have been affected, otherwise you have the right to be reimbursed and we will work hard to get you the reimbursement.
What if I rented my house?
Renters that lose all their belongings in a fire usually have substantial personal property losses. It is expensive to replace the furniture, kitchenware, clothes, and other things that we continue to accumulate over a lifetime. Renters may seek intangible damages due to the pain and distress incurred by the fire.
