Kincade Wildfire Claims

The Santa Rosa Kincade Wildfire attorneys at Abbey, Weitzenberg, Warren & Emery want to take this opportunity to express our sincerest condolences to those who have been directly impacted by the tragic fire that swept through Sonoma County in 2019.

Many people carry insurance protection for their homes, businesses, and persons. But it is often the case that these protections fall short when they are truly needed. If your insurance reimbursement is not enough to reassemble your life, you may be eligible for a settlement award to recover your home, medical expenses, lost income, and emotional aggrievance.

Injury, property damage, and occupational interruption must not go unchallenged. Despite the destructive consequences of wildfire events, the flames cannot eliminate your right to indemnity. Let us help you secure the compensation you deserve so that you and your loved ones can get back on your feet.

About the Kincade Wildfire

On October 23, 2019, at 9:24 p.m., a wildfire broke out northeast of Geyserville and subsequently burned 77,758 acres of land throughout Sonoma County before the fire was fully contained on November 6, 2019. The fire, now dubbed the Kincade Fire, was the largest of the 2019 California wildfire season as well as the largest wildfire ever to occur in our community. Nearly 200,000 people were ordered to evacuate, over 100 buildings were damaged, and more than 80,000 more structures were threatened by the fire.

The cause has not been definitively determined but was likely malfunctioning electrical equipment owned by Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E). On March 23, 2020, the San Francisco electrical company pled guilty to 84 felony counts of involuntary manslaughter and one felony count of unlawfully starting a fire.

Those who have been affected by the fire may be entitled to file a lawsuit against PG&E. We advise you to consult with an attorney as soon as possible, as there can be strict time deadlines to take legal action.

Is There a Class Action Lawsuit for the Kincade Fire?

There is no class action (group lawsuit) against PG&E. Kincade Wildfire claims can be filed on an individual basis, which will allow you to claim damages specific to your unique losses.

What Types of Damages Am I Entitled To?

Since Kincade Wildfire claims are being filed on an individual basis, each person’s losses will be different. You should be entitled to recover whatever you lost in the fire, plus any injuries and/or physical and emotional pain you suffered as a result.

These damages include, but are not limited to:

  • Personal injury
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Repair costs to fix or replace your home
  • Business losses
  • Compensation for lost personal belongings
  • Compensation for the loss of use and enjoyment of your property
  • Lost wages (if the fire affected your ability to work)
  • Depreciation in the value of your land
  • Damage to crops and greenery
  • Harm to pets or livestock

Do I Have to Pay an Attorney to Take My Case?

Our law firm operates on a contingency fee basis, meaning that our clients never have to pay us in advance nor out of their own pockets. Instead, we share a mutually agreed-upon percentage of the amount in damages you recover if your claim is successful. This means that if you don’t get paid, neither do we.
