PG&E continues to prioritize profits instead of the thousands of victims impacted by the many major wildfires like the 2018 Camp Fire & 2019 Kincade Fire sparked by PG&E thanks to faulty equipment and poor maintenance. Northern California Wildfire Lawyer Mike Danko speaks with Kron On regarding PG&E’s priorities and the new norm California residents now face.
According to a Wall Street Journal article published on July 10, 2019, PG&E knew for years that its transmission system needed repairs but kept delaying. Worse, many of these repairs are still needed today.
The Butte County Grand Jury has released its 2018-2019 Annual Report and it has a huge focus on wildfire safety. The report examines the “lessons learned” from the 2018 Camp Fire, and provides a list of recommendations to improve evacuation plans and emergency communication systems in the County.
CHICO, CA – Danko Meredith, Gibbs Law Group, and Corey, Luzaich, de Ghetaldi & Riddle, a coalition of law firms known as Northern California Fire Lawyers, want to alert those affected by the 2018 Camp Fire that the Court set an important deadline today for the filing of potential legal claims against PG&E: all victims and survivors of PG&E-caused fires must file their claim papers with the bankruptcy court by October 21, 2019. Those affected by the Camp Fire who do not file claims against PG&E by the deadline will not be able to recover money for injuries, evacuations, lost homes or businesses that occurred as a result of the region’s November 2018 wildfires.
