The amount offered by the insurance company may fall short of the full home value if the property is under insured or the investigation is not completed within a certain time.
Structure Damage Partial destruction of your home or business from fire damage can require rebuilding, but your insurance company may urge you to make repairs to the damaged structure instead.
Partial Damage Falling ash, soot and smoke can cause extensive damage to floors, walls and furniture. Your insurance may want to pay for cleaning rather than replacing damaged property.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need an attorney?
If you have been injured or suffered loss of property as a result of the negligence of another, whether they are a company or individual, you are well advised to seek the assistance of a personal injury attorney. Your statements and behavior after an accident can have consequences on your ability to file insurance claims.
What if I’ve already taken steps independently?
More often than not, our new clients have begun the claims process themselves and find it stressful and burdensome, or simply cannot comply with insurance company demands. Once we are retained by a client, we begin gathering the requisite information and inform the insurance carriers to direct all communication to our office. It is our goal to alleviate as much stress as we can from our clients so they can concentrate on restoring their lives.
The insurance company said I don’t need an attorney—is that true?
It is important to remember that your interests and the interests of the insurance company are not the same. While it is illegal for a non-attorney, such as an insurance adjuster, to provide legal advice, they often do, and it usually is not very sound. You should always seek an opinion from a personal injury lawyer to get an unbiased legal opinion regarding your case and your rights. At Butte Camp Fire Lawyers we provide free, no risk case consultations to injured persons and their families.
What damages am I entitled to recover?
This will depend largely on the type of case and the damages sustained. In wildfire cases our clients are entitled to recover compensation for wrongful death, damage to their house and vehicle, medical expenses, property loss, pain & suffering, loss of income, soot, ash or smoke damage, home repair costs, evacuation expenses and additional living expenses. Past and future medical expenses are recoverable, as are all past and future lost wages. Also recoverable are ‘general damages’, which include pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress, and inconvenience associated with the injury. In some cases, our clients are entitled to ‘punitive damages’, these are damages which are intended to punish the wrongdoer, when that wrongdoers actions were intentional or reckless.
Is my case big enough for a lawyer to handle?
The attorneys at Butte Camp Fire Lawyers handle small, medium, large, and very large damage cases. Our cases range from class action, catastrophic injury, wrongful death and complete property loss to individual property loss cases. We are equipped to handle and all fire cases resulting from negligence.
Will the information I share with you be confidential?
Yes. The information you share with us is protected by the attorney-client privilege and will remain confidential. This protection will apply even when our legal representation terminates or if you do not retain our firm. Because your communications with us are privileged, it is important that you make full disclosure of all pertinent facts with respect to your personal injury claim (such as prior injuries) so that we can fully access your case. This is further important so the defense does not catch us by surprise in the middle of representation, which could be detrimental to your case.
How soon after the fire do I have to file a lawsuit?
The timeframe that you have to file a lawsuit is referred to as the statute of limitations. If you fail to file a lawsuit before the statute of limitations expires, your case will be forever barred. For most accidental damage cases in California, such as wildfires, you have two years from the date of your injury to file a lawsuit against the responsible parties. However, with respect to claims against government entities or for corporate negligence, the statute of limitations is much shorter. Therefore, due to the time-sensitive nature of accident claims, you should immediately contact an attorney regarding your loss.
What should I bring with me for my meeting with a lawyer?
You should bring all documents in your possession that are related to your loss. For example, in cases of fire damage bring proof of loss for all material that was damaged or destroyed. Bring copies of medical records for treatment related to the accident, correspondence from the insurance companies, estimates and repair records and receipts for your evacuation, receipts for home or car repair, and any wage loss information. During your meeting, we will make photocopies of all of your documents so that you can retain a copy for your records. We will also provide you with checklists for any other information that we may need from you.
How much will I have to pay Butte Camp Fire Lawyers at the conclusion of my case?
We only work on a contingency fee, meaning that if we do not win, we do not get paid. Injury victims cannot afford to pay an attorney by the hour. Our contingency fee is in line with other top-quality lawyers who handle serious personal injury matters. There are no up front costs or fees with us.
Do I have to pay for my initial meeting with Butte Camp Fire Lawyers?
No! Butte Camp Fire Lawyers never charges for client consultations. All client consultations to discuss a potential claim are absolutely free. If you feel you have a potential claim, please call our office at (530) 236-0850 to set up your free consultation and case evaluation.
