Napa & Sonoma Wildfire Insurance Claim FAQ
What caused the 2017 Napa and Sonoma wildfires?
A Cal Fire investigation of the October 2017 wildfires that ravaged Napa County found windblown trees and tree limbs to blame for the Atlas and Partrick/Nuns fires. According to the investigation, the trees fell into PG&E power lines and started the fires. Pacific Gas & Electric settled with nine counties and cities affected by the wildfires, following a lawsuit that alleged negligent maintenance of electrical infrastructure. The $415 million settlement will be divided between the nine jurisdictions, with $34 million to be distributed to Napa County and $6.3 million to the City of Napa, specifically.
Insurance should cover my losses caused by the Wine Country wildfires. Do I need an attorney?
If you suffered losses in the Napa County wildfires or as a result of any wildfire, it’s important to talk to an attorney about your rights. You may think that your insurance company will handle your fire damage claim in a fair and swift manner, but the opposite is typically true when fires ravage entire regions like they did Napa and Sonoma County in 2017. Overloaded with claims, insurance providers may try to delay or underpay.
An attorney can assert your right to complete compensation for all your losses. That’s what our team at Arnold & Itkin does for individuals and businesses across the country. We’re ready to fight for you.
