BOBCAT FIRE ATTORNEYS

Fighting for Victims of California Wildfires

The Bobcat Fire was one of several fires to strike California during the 2020 wildfire season. With over 115,000 acres burned, it is one of the largest fires ever recorded in Los Angeles County.

Like numerous other wildfires that have plagued California in recent years, investigators have found evidence that equipment owned by Southern California Edison may have caused the Bobcat Fire.

If you or a family member sustained personal injury, wrongful death, or damage to your property or commercial business, you may be eligible to file a claim for damages from SCE. You may be entitled to a financial recovery even if you have already received payments from your insurance carrier.

    BOBCAT FIRE DAMAGE & EVACUATIONS

    The Bobcat Fire began on September 6, 2020 near Cogswell Dam in the Los Angeles National Forest.

    Over the course of nearly two months, the blaze destroyed and damaged more than 200 structures, contributed to hazardous air quality, and prompted evacuation orders and warnings for thousands of residents across the area, including those in the communities of:

    • Arcadia
    • Camp Williams
    • Sierra Madre
    • Monrovia
    • Bradbury
    • Duarte
    • Pasadena
    • Altadena

    SCE-OWNED EQUIPMENT MAY HAVE
    STARTED the BOBCAT FIRE

    On October 12, 2020, Southern California Edison sent a letter notifying the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) that the Bobcat Fire may have started when tree branches came into contact with an overhead conductor owned by SCE.

    The letter follows the utility’s September 15th filing with the CPUC that there had been an “incident” on an SCE grid around the same area and time the Bobcat fire began.

    Though SCE and the U.S. Forest Service are continuing investigations to determine whether vegetation contributed to the blaze, SoCal Edison may still be liable for damages suffered by victims.

    That is because utilities can be held liable for wildfire damages caused or contributed to by their equipment under the state’s inverse-condemnation law, which entitles property owners to just compensation when their property is damaged by a public use.

    At Robins Cloud LLP, our attorneys leverage decades of experience litigating wildfire cases across California to help clients seek compensation through various means, including:

    • Negligence and inverse-condemnation lawsuits
    • Personal injury or wrongful death claims
    • Insurance claims and civil suits over bad faith denials or delays
