UPDATE: The deadline to file a claim with PG&E for damages due to the Camp Fire (and other California 2017 and 2018 wildfires) is TODAY, December 31, 2019. To register for a claim, lawyer up with us and fill out the claim form found HERE.
In January, PG&E filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (also called a “restructuring bankruptcy”). With these types of bankruptcy cases, the company filing has debt that exceeds its profits and assets. The offending company’s debt is erased during a restructuring bankruptcy. However, that only happens under the condition that it will restructure itself in such a way to prevent the type of financial situation that forced them to file initially. However, that doesn’t necessarily immunize them from lawsuits (not all lawsuits are stopped by an “automatic stay”).
A judge extended the deadline to file a PG&E claim for damages suffered during the 2017 and 2018 California wildfires (including the Camp Fire) to December 31, 2019.
This extension adds a total of 46 days to the deadline to file your claim. So, if you were affected by the Camp Fire (or any other devastating California wildfire from 2017 to 2018), then don’t hesitate. File your claim by filling out the PDF form found here today.
