San Diego Wildfire Lawyers Serving Clients Affected by the Kincaid and Easy Fires

Wildfire Lawsuits Attorney San Diego CA - Gingery Hammer Schneiderman LLPRecent wildfires in Southern California, have wreaked havoc and destroyed entire communities. The Kincaid Fire alone has cost hundreds of Californians their property and livelihoods as it ravaged over 77,000 acres. Some evidence suggests that Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) may be at least partially responsible for these destructive blazes. If this is found to be true, anyone who has experienced loss or bodily injury as a result of the fires may be able to file personal injury claims against the company and recover monetary compensation proportionate to their damages.

Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) may be Responsible for Kincaid Fire

PG&E owns and manages electric grids, powerlines, and utility services throughout San Diego County and the rest of Southern California. The company reported a tower outage on the morning of October 23, near the location where the fire started and around the same time. Given the strong winds that occurred around the time of the recent California fires, it is also possible that trees may have fallen and destroyed power lines in the area of John Kincaid Road, which may still point to PG&E liability if the company failed to cut or remove them beforehand.

If it can be determined that PG&E equipment caused the destructive Kincaid Fire, the company may be liable for the damages and bodily injuries experienced by private citizens. Although it remains to be proven that PG&E caused the recent fires, it may still be prudent to consult with an attorney and explore your legal options.
