Adler Law Group, APLC represents individuals and businesses that have been harmed by the Dixie Fire. We’ve successfully represented over 3,000 individuals against PG&E. Adler Law Group together with co-counsel has aggressively recovered hundreds of millions of dollars, cumulatively, on behalf of our clients. We have local roots and the expertise to handle your case.
We are against the class-action model in a wildfire litigation. We individually build your case in order to recover all of the specific damages incurred by you since we know that no two wildfire cases will have the exact same losses. We take pride in the fact that we have helped so many Northern Californians rebuild their lives after a destructive fire.
Our top-tier attorneys have largely spent their careers representing wildfire victims and maximizing their recoveries. We are solidly focused on fire litigation, and we have the resources to prioritize your case. Since 2015, we have consistently worked for Northern Californians against PG&E in the Butte Fire (2015), North Bay Fires (2017), Camp Fire (2018), and Kincade Fire (2019). This includes helping to shepherd our clients who were affected by the PG&E bankruptcy. We now represent individuals and businesses in the Dixie and Fly Fires.
Initial investigation and disclosure from PG&E to the CPUC indicates that fuses exploded on a PG&E transmission line and a tree was leaning on the electrical apparatus. On July 13th, a PG&E repairman journeyed 13 hours to finally inspect the system after PG&E was notified of an outage at Cresta Dam, near Highway 70 in the Feather River Canyon. By then, the Dixie Fire was already growing in dangerous tinder-dry conditions.
On July 22nd, the Fly Fire erupted in Plumas County, and later merged with the Dixie Fire. The Fly fire also appears to have been caused by PG&E, based on the company’s disclosures to the CPUC. The Dixie Fire has destroyed hundreds of thousands of acres, destroyed Greenville, CA, and is threatening surrounding communities, forcing the evacuation of thousands of individuals.
PG&E appears to be liable to individuals and businesses that have been harmed by these fires, through Inverse Condemnation, Negligence, as well as other causes of action under California law. The case against PG&E looks very strong.
