The Northern California wildfires consumed 8,900 structures, burned 245,000 acres, sent 185 people to the hospital, and left 43 more dead. The investigation exploring what caused this tragedy is still ongoing, but information that has already been uncovered indicates that the initial sparks may have come from PG&E electrical lines. This raises serious questions about the electrical company’s upkeep and maintenance of PG&E's equipment, and whether or not PG&E acted reasonably and lawfully by trimming shrubbery and trees near its power lines.

While we treat every case as if it affects us personally, it’s especially true in this situation. Firm partner Tim Tietjen lost his own home in Napa to the fires. In a blog we recently posted to the site, he said that,
“I am determined to find out what happened and hold responsible parties accountable. I understand what fire victims are going through—because I’m going through it myself—and that provides extra motivation to obtain full compensation for my fellow Northern Californians.”
Tim will review the insurance policies of those who suffered losses in this tragic fire free of charge, as well as provide advice on the best course of action to take moving forward. On top of that, he has offered free consultations to discuss potential legal remedies fellow fire victims can explore.
