Laguna Niguel, Orange County Coastal Fire Lawsuits

The Coastal Fire in Laguna Niguel, Orange County, California has razed dozens of homes and displaced hundreds of families. All of this destruction has happened even though the fire has burned approximately 200 acres, which is small compared to other recent fires in California. The total damage could be even more catastrophic if it continues to spread.

Robins Cloud LLP is currently hearing from the people impacted by the Coastal Fire, which was believed to be started by negligence from Southern California Edison (SCE). As we have done after other manmade wildfires burned through neighborhoods and took lives, our California fire lawsuit attorneys are investigating to see if we can hold the utility company accountable in and out of court. It might be possible that SCE owes you and your family significant compensation for the Coastal Fire.

Call (310) 340-2898 now to talk to our California wildfire lawyers.

Why is SCE Liable for the Coastal Fire?

Investigators have not definitively pointed a finger at SCE for the Coastal Fire that is burning through Laguna Niguel. However, SCE did seem to admit the potential of company negligence by stating that “circuit activity” was occurring in the area briefly before the fire broke out on May 12th, 2022. Time and again, the source of a devastating wildfire can be traced to equipment failures sparking fires, such as what happened with the Woolsey Fire, Kincade Fire, and many others.

If SCE is found liable for the Coastal Fire, the company could owe those affected:

  • Property repair and replacement costs
  • Emotional trauma and mental anguish
  • Lowered enjoyment of life
  • Any medical costs if an injury or fatality occurs

It might also be that Southern California Edison can be penalized with punitive damages. When a court finds that a defendant acted with egregious negligence or criminal wrongdoing, it can approve punitive damages to further compensate the claimants and punish the defendant.

The Coastal Fire is still burning and causing damage and hardships, so the investigation into its cause is not yet complete. Yet it still makes sense to explore your legal options as soon as possible if you were impacted by this likely-preventable fire. Call (310) 340-2898 to see how to start a claim.
