California Fire Lawyers Seek Compensation From PG&E
A Northern California fire started in the morning of November 8, 2018 and overtook the town of Paradise in twelve short hours (timeline here). The Norcal fire probably didn’t start as a wildfire. Preliminary evidence supports allegations that PG&E, the utility running the power in Northern CA, has liability for damages caused by the wildfires. This means that those who lost loved ones, were burned, lost property, and/or lost income, may have a viable negligence theory of liability against PG&E. This is what fire lawyers are fighting to achieve for victims of the California wildfires.
Consider November 8th The Day Paradise Burned Down
Similar to 2017 California wildfires, PG&E is again under scrutiny since evidence points to their equipment as the start of Norcal Fires. The existence of an at-fault party for the wildfire’s victims means that wrongful death and burn injury claims will be put toward PG&E for payment. Like any other allegation of negligence, further investigation is necessary to determine the strength of the claims from a liability and extent of injuries standpoint. Whether the utility is liable may never be tried to jury since settlements prior to trial is usually the case for most litigation.
California Fire Lawyers Investigate and Provide Valuable Claims Help
The results of the liability investigation against PG&E will affect all of the claims for fire damages against it. The aggressive lawyers conducting litigation against PG&E strengthen the first plaintiffs or bellwethers, and the predictive value of those cases affect all claimants presenting claims for damages. Once a settlement is reached, individual claims are presented and settled on a showing of damages which the carrier adjusts on an individual basis. Since the Northern California fires might be settled at policy limits or more, it is important that all claimants have Northern fire lawyers representation.
