Chico Fire Damage Attorneys
Helping Clients Reclaim Their Lives After Disaster
Fires are caused by a variety of reasons and sometimes involve fires at homes, businesses, wildland fires, and forest fires. Wildland and forest fires have the potential to cause serious personal injury, property damage, and even death to those in the paths of fire.
With its mountainous terrain and heavy vegetation, Northern California is a prime area for wildfires. Sometimes, these fires are unavoidable, such as when they begin by lightning strikes.
At other times, they are caused by carelessness which may lead to compensable damages, caused by:
- Carelessly disposing of cigarette butts
- Open burning when there is a ban in place
- Careless use of vehicles
- Unsafe campfires
- Storing flammable materials near open flames
- Improper disposal of materials such as oily rags that later spontaneously combust
- Illegal activities
- Improper or unsafe vegetation management by property owners
Wildland and forest fires require a great deal of time and resources to properly contain them. Once they are extinguished, investigations into their cause is required. When investigations uncover negligence on the part of others, these individuals can be held liable for any injuries or damage that occurs as a result.
Fire claims can be complicated and expensive to investigate and litigate. Some attorneys do not want to handle fire cases. That doesn’t mean that help is not available. Contact the experienced Chico fire damage attorneys at Peters, Habib, McKenna, Juhl-Rhodes & Cardoza, LLP if you or your property have been injured by fire.
