If Your Insurance Company Won’t Cooperate‚ Jurewitz Law Group Will

As Californians‚ we have it rough when wildfire season rolls around. Each new year seems to be the worst yet for California residents and homeowners‚ with lives and property threatened at nearly unprecedented levels.

If you or your loved ones have been impacted by the wildfires‚ you are going through one of the most traumatic events of your lives. It’s important at a time such as this to have an advocate on your side who can help you navigate the issues you are facing and make sure that your family’s future is protected. The experienced and compassionate team at Jurewitz Law Group has a proven track record in taking on insurance companies that want to withhold the full amount that they owe.

The Worst Fire Year on Record?

According to a report from CNN‚ the fires in 2018 are officially the largest in California’s recorded history. The most prodigious blaze was the Mendocino Complex in Northern California‚ made up of two neighboring fires: the Ranch and River fires. Together‚ they burned at least 300‚000 acres. No fatalities resulted from the Mendocino Complex‚ but hundreds of homes were destroyed.

Unfortunately‚ the Carr Fire in Shasta County claimed at least seven lives. Thousands of people have been adversely affected by fires throughout the state‚ and more will be affected come next year’s fire season.

Who Can Wildfire Victims Turn to for Help?

People who have had their lives turned upside down by a wildfire believe that they have the consolation of being protected by their homeowners insurance. But many victims soon realize that their policies‚ especially older ones‚ won’t come close to providing the financial compensation they need to put their lives back together. In the worst cases‚ they won’t be protected at all.

Insurance companies are notorious for doing every thing they can to avoid paying out large settlements. This may be good policy for their shareholders‚ but not for the customers who trusted them. We at Jurewitz Law Group believe that insurers have an obligation to provide full and fair financial indemnity to policyholders. That’s why we have dedicated our careers to taking on unscrupulous insurance companies.

Who Can Be Held Responsible?

Every fire is unique and has its own cause. In some cases‚ the fire may have been completely natural in origin. Others are freak accidents. But in some circumstances‚ wildfires are caused by someone’s negligence. For instance‚ in 2015‚ Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) was accused of starting that year’s wine country fires when a tree fell into one of their power lines. The Thomas Fire in 2017 has been blamed on Southern California Edison.

It can take years to resolve who was at fault for a wildfire. In the meantime‚ victims are left trying to put the pieces back together all on their own…and some insurance companies aren’t helping. Our goal is to assess the situation and find a quick and meaningful solution that can help protect your future.
