Dixie Fire Lawsuit Attorney (888) 923-7001

The Dixie Fire started burning Northern California on July 13, 2021. By Sept. 1, the fire had burned more than 840,000 square acres, forcing thousands of residents to flee their homes. The Dixie Fire has since become the largest single-source wildfire in California history. It is the state’s second-largest fire overall.

Help is available for those affected by the Dixie Fire. Survivors may be eligible for a lawsuit against Pacific Gas & Electric. The utility provider’s equipment may be responsible for the fire.  PG&E appeared to admit responsibility in its preliminary investigation.

Can I File a Lawsuit for the Dixie Fire?

If you lost property, were physically injured, or suffered any type of harm due to the Dixie Fire, you may have grounds for legal action.  Although investigations are ongoing, preliminary reports (as of August 27) suggest PG&E power equipment caused the Dixie fire. You may be eligible to file a lawsuit against PG&E and other parties that may be responsible for this event.

Utility companies have a responsibility to maintain and monitor their equipment, including power lines; PG&E failed to take these actions, which led to the destructive wildfire. Consequently, PG&E is likely liable for any damages that people have suffered due to the Dixie Fire.

To prove your wildfire lawsuit against PG&E, you will need to show that PG&E was responsible for the event and the damages you sustained. The Dixie Fire attorneys at Matthews & Associates can help.

Filing an Insurance Claim After the Dixie Fire

If you have homeowner’s insurance, you may consider filing a claim to recover compensation for losses related to the Dixie Fire. Many insurance policies do provide coverage for fires and other natural disasters. However, many wildfire survivors struggle to obtain adequate compensation for their claims.

Wildfires often result in damages that exceed insurance policy limits. In some cases, insurers may engage in bad faith to avoid paying for such extensive losses. If you believe that your insurance company has acted in bad faith and is not paying the compensation you deserve, speak to a Dixie Fire lawyer at Matthews & Associates. Our attorneys can help identify your best path to recovery.
