Paradise Camp Fire Attorneys
The Camp Fire has devastated the town of Paradise and surrounding communities. At the time of writing over 6,000 structures have been destroyed, many of which were the homes or businesses victims relied upon for shelter or financial stability. The damage hits especially close to home for our office as our founding attorney, Lawrence A. Puritz, lost his home of 20 years in the Camp Fire.
The damage to property, while devastating, is dwarfed by the injuries and deaths resulting from the Camp Fire. At the time of writing, there have been 81 victims who lost their lives in the Camp Fire and hundreds remain unaccounted for. The extent of devastation from the Camp Fire is unprecedented. According to Cal Fire, the Paradise Camp Fire was the most destructive fire in California’s history. As far as fires go, they do not get any worse than the Camp Fire.
Due to the size and scope of claims and litigation resulting from the Camp Fire, the Law Offices of Lawrence A. Puritz has associated the renowned wildfire damages/injury law firm Dreyer, Babich, Buccola, Wood & Campora. By doing so, we can offer victims of the Camp Fire the same client first, aggressive personal injury representation that we bring to each case along with the resources and experience of a firm that has been successfully litigating fire related claims and lawsuits involving PG&E for well over a decade.
Moving Forward After The Camp Fire
Along with all of you, we mourn the losses to our friends, family, and community each day. That said, Mr. Puritz has decided that rather than allow this tragic event to map his future, he will take action. As helpless as this tragedy has made so many in our community feel, victims of the Camp Fire now have the opportunity to regain control and actively navigate how the Camp Fire’s will affect their future.
There are remedies and potential compensation, beyond homeowner’s insurance claims, available for those who have suffered the loss of their home, business, or property in the Camp Fire. Additionally, if you were injured or lost a family member or loved one in the Camp Fire, you may be entitled to financial compensation through a personal injury or wrongful death claim.
You will hear a number of things in regard to filing or participating in a lawsuit after the Camp Fire. Please understand that much of that information is propaganda designed to dissuade victims from seeking the financial compensation they deserve. The truth is that many victims are filing lawsuits for damages sustained in the Camp Fire and many of those who file will be successful in recovering financial compensation for losses attributable to the fire. Please understand that there is no principle that would make pursuing compensation for damages in a situation like this a question of one’s moral or ethical character. Don’t be misled.
