Dixie Fire Ravages California

What Happened?

The Dixie Fire is the 14th most destructive wildfire in recorded California history.

Who Are We After?

Pacific Gas & Electric, or PG&E, was shown to have neglected proper maintenance of trees and power lines, causing downed power lines and sparking the catastrophic blaze.

Why Do We Fight?

This isn’t just about one utility company’s repeated oversights, as shown in the numerous preventative wildfires in the last decade. It’s a broader, systemic issue where utilities across the country have fueled the wildfire epidemic due to neglect and greed.

Wildfire Frequently Asked Questions

If someone damages your property or causes a nuisance, you can claim damages for the emotional distress it causes you. This is true even if you weren't physically present when the damage happened.
The claims are not part of a class action lawsuit. In a class action, a few people represent a large group with similar concerns. However, fire loss cases are unique to each person. So, instead of a class action, claims against PG&E are individual. These groups of claims are often termed mass actions or mass tort claims. If you hire our firm, we'll file an individual claim for you against PG&E.
Regardless of your insurance status, many find that their coverage doesn't fully account for all the damages, especially those that are irreplaceable. You might experience various types of losses:
  • Fire or smoke damage to businesses
  • Business disruptions or customer loss due to fires
  • Home damages
  • Renters' damages
  • Property damage
  • Job or income loss
  • Physical injuries
  • Emotional distress
  • Wrongful death
If your trees were damaged or destroyed by a fire, your insurance might only cover a limited amount per tree. However, you can sue the ones responsible for the fire for the actual value of the trees, not just this limited amount. Besides the actual worth of the trees, California law might let you recover extra damages like legal fees and emotional distress from losing the trees.
You don’t pay us any fees up front. You will never pay us anything unless we win a recovery on your behalf.
