ATTENTION CAMPFIRE VICTIMS! Insurance Does Not Cover All Losses!

ATTENTION CAMPFIRE VICTIMS! Insurance Does Not Cover All Losses!

There are so many damages and mass destruction in the Nothrethn California areas of Chico, Paradise, and all the other surrounding areas, communities and towns.

Here are some things that can come from a fire that was devastating as this was on our community,

Damages Commonly Arising for Fire Victims:

  • Burn injuries: The uncontrolled flames inflicted severe burn injuries and smoke inhalation injuries. Treatment can be costly. The bills should not be paid by those who were wrongfully injured.
  • Property loss: Replacing destroyed property may be impossible for most people due to insurance caps. Compensation won through a lawsuit filed against PG&E may be able to cover the missing amounts.
  • Property Damage: Compensation for costs incurred to replace and/or repair damaged real property, personal property, trees, and landscaping.
  • Wrongful death: With more than 40 people perished in the Napa and Sonoma County fires, the liability parties have much to make right. A wrongful death claim will seek typical damages along with damages related to the death of a loved one, such as burial costs, wages that would have been made in the lifetime of the decedent, and loss of consortium. Our Napa wildfire attorneys offer compassionate legal counsel delivered with sensitivity, for we know how painful it is to file a wrongful death claim.
  • Evacuation and Displacement Expenses: Hotels, food, and gas while displaced takes a massive toll on your financial health. Rent and furnishing costs soar during a disaster and have a lasting impact.
  • Emotional Damages: Fear for yourself and others while escaping and fleeing the Camp Fire can be life altering and cause severe mental anguish, requiring expensive mental health treatment.

Other types of damages may include loss of livestock, business profits if your winery was destroyed, crops, and commercial or agricultural vehicles. By considering all possible avenues for compensation, we hope to maximize your chances of getting as large a recovery as possible.

Insurance Does Not Cover All Losses

  • Most people are under insured
  • Personal property items are depreciated by Insurance Companies, resulting in lower payout and the inability to replace the item
  • Many damages are outside of the coverage in your policy such as: emotional damages, erosion, or lost income, or are only minimally covered, for example, trees, shrubs, and landscaping.
