Over the past several years, California wildfires sparked by faulty electrical equipment are responsible for billions in property damage, displacing thousands from their homes, and causing dozens of deaths. Many wildfire victims have sued the utility companies whose equipment ignited the blazes. The Dixie Fire, now officially the largest in California history, started in the Sierra Nevada Mountains on July 13, 2021. Named for the road where it started, the Dixie Fire initially ignited in Feather River Canyon near Cresta Powerhouse and Lake Almanor.
As of September 5, 2021, the Dixie Fire has burned down 893,852 acres (1,396 square miles) in Northern California, an increase of 8,000 acres in 24 hours. Containment was 56%, destroying homes and other structures in the counties of Butte, Plumas, Tehama, and Lassen.
There are several types of damages that are recoverable in a wildfire lawsuit. Wildfires commonly cause fatalities and physical injuries. Persons who suffered a personal injury may be able to recover reimbursement for medical expenses, pain and suffering damages, and lost past and future income due to missed work from the fires.
For property damage, wildfire victims may recover the cost of repairing or replacing lost homes and other structures, lost personal property including automobiles and furniture, lost trees and landscaping, and damaged property such as swimming pools, retaining walls and fences. The physical and mental damages a wildfire can cause include, but are not limited to:
Several lawsuits have been filed against California utilities Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) and Southern California Edison for their roles in recent wildfires. In 2019, PG&E filed for bankruptcy after an investigation into the deadly 2018 Camp Fire found that the blaze was likely caused by malfunctioning electrical equipment. The Camp Fire is California’s deadliest wildfire to date and caused billions of dollars in damage. In 2020, PG&E pleaded guilty to causing the deaths of 84 people in the Camp Fire, which burned for 17 days and destroyed nearly 19,000 buildings, including more than 11,000 homes.
Also, while many wildfire victims have insurance, it is usually inadequate to completely rebuild or replace the home and real property destroyed to pre-fire condition. It is also typically inadequate to compensate victims for all of the personal property lost, not to mention the personal items which have little to no intrinsic value, but which are priceless to the owners.
