Panic and Destruction
The Carr Fire, which began on July 23, 2018, has cost the lives of 8 people and has destroyed over 1,000 private residences. The fire is now considered the second-largest in the history of California.
The emotional and expensive recovery process is just beginning for affected Shasta County residents returning to their damaged or desolated homes. Because of the erratic nature of the fire, many families barely escaped the flames with their lives and were unable to save anything from their properties. Although some losses may be irreplaceable, it is important for you to understand your legal rights regarding your insurance coverages for your damaged homes and property.
Although homeowners insurance may cover fire damage and even smoke-related damages, the financial compensation awarded may not be enough to recoup your losses. Insurance companies can be notorious for denying claims, underpaying for damages, and delaying payments. That’s why it may be essential to work with a lawyer following a disaster such as this. A qualified attorney can guide you through this process and help you understand all of your options during this pivotal time.
When someone is affected by a fire, there are many types of losses, including:
- Property Damage
- Homes and other structures
- Personal property/contents of the home
- Trees and landscaping
- Evacuation/Alternative Living Expenses
- Hotel/food/gas during
- Rent and additional costs for temporary living
- Lost Income
- Personal income (including loss of sick and vacation days)
- Business income
