Orange County Coastal Fire Lawsuit – Compensation You Can Seek

Orange County Coastal Fire victims are homeowners, renters, business owners, and other individuals and entities whose property and lives were, literally and figuratively, destroyed by the Orange County Coastal Fire.

While each case is different, common damage categories include:  

  • Lost wages
  • Loss of crops
  • Personal injury
  • Wrongful death
  • Business losses
  • Evacuation costs
  • Emotional distress
  • Harm to pets or livestock
  • Depreciation in the value of your land

You may be entitled to damages that your insurance – even good insurance — won’t cover. In addition to underinsured homes, most insurance policies don’t cover vegetation that is not part of the landscaping, natural vegetation or compensation for you or your family for the upheaval caused by the Orange County Coastal Fire. The law provides for more compensation than most people realize.
