We Serve Clients Affected by the Camp Fire

The recent wildfires in Northern California and the Sierra Nevada foothills have taken more than 50 lives, burned more than 7,000 homes, and destroyed entire communities. The historic Camp Fire alone has cost thousands of Californians their property, livelihoods, and loved ones. Some evidence suggests that Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) may be at least partially responsible for the destructive blazes. If this is determined to be true, anyone who has experienced loss as a result of the fires may be able to file personal injury claims against the company and recover compensation proportionate to their damages.

Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) may be Responsible for Camp Fire

PG&E owns and manages electric grids, powerlines, and utility services throughout Butte County and the rest of Northern California. The company has now reported multiple power line outages on the morning of November 8, near the location where the fire started and around the same time. Given the strong winds that occurred around the time of the recent California fires, it is also possible that trees may have fallen and destroyed power lines, which may still point to PG&E liability if the company failed to cut or remove them beforehand.

If it can be determined that PG&E equipment caused the destructive Camp Fire, the company may be liable for the damages experienced by private citizens. Though there is not yet any concrete evidence to prove that PG&E caused the recent fires, it may still be wise to consult with an attorney and explore your legal options.
