California Thomas Fire Attorneys

Those Who Lost Homes and Belongings in the 2017 Blaze Could Be Able to File for Compensation

A report filed by the Ventura County Fire Department named Southern California Edison as the at-fault party behind the 2017 Thomas Fire.

The Thomas Fire marks neither the first nor the last time SoCal Edison’s aging infrastructure has caused a devastating blaze. California is at high risk for fires much of the year, when scorching heat dries out the vegetation and fast winds can turn a spark into an inferno within minutes. As these fires continue to become more destructive, people are losing their homes and livelihoods. Our firm wants to help anyone in this position—because you might be eligible to file a claim for compensation from SoCal Edison. If you and your loved ones have suffered, reach out to our team to learn about your rights. We are on your side.

Those who were affected by the Thomas Fire, which at one point led to over 100,000 evacuations and damaged 1,063 structures, might be eligible to receive compensation for their losses by filing a claim against SoCal Edison. Our attorneys can help you figure out if you’re eligible to ask for payment. There are unfortunately many rumors that have stopped victims from trying to exercise the right. However, you can file:

  • Even if you have received some reimbursement from your homeowners’ or renters’ insurance
  • Whether you owned property in the fire’s path, or were a renter
  • If you suffered health problems or lost personal property in the fire

If you have suffered damages as a result of SoCal Edison’s failure to maintain up-to-date and safe equipment, you have the right to demand that they reimburse you for all of your losses. You could be able to recover for:

  • Loss of or damage to structures on your property
  • Loss or damage to trees or other vegetation on your property
  • Loss of or damage to personal belongings
  • Loss of use of property
  • Additional living expenses
  • Lost business income
  • Medical expenses related to the fire
  • Injured or lost pets and/or livestock

If you are not sure what or how you might be eligible to recover, our attorney team is here to help you. We are offering completely free case evaluations to victims of the Thomas Fire.

Along with those who were injured or saw their homes burn in the original blaze, many in the Montecito area lost their houses and/or their lives due to mudslides from the newly-burned hills. All of this destruction can be traced back to a pair of SCE power equipment that started the blaze.

This fire then spread throughout Ventura and Santa Barbara counties, threatening residents of Ojai, Fillmore, Santa Paula, Ventura, and the unincorporated communities in the area. If you lived in one of these areas and were affected by the Thomas Fire, we invite you to reach out to our attorneys to see if you may be eligible for compensation. We are here to help people like you take on the negligent utility for endangering Californians.
