Camp Fire Lawsuit to Recover Losses

PG&E says Camp Fire criminal fine won’t be paid with victims’ fund

“PG&E Corp. said Monday that it no longer plans to pay $4 million related to the 2018 Camp Fire criminal case from a $13.5 billion trust intended to compensate individual fire victims. Instead, the cost will be borne by insurance companies who are party to a separate $11 billion settlement in PG&E’s bankruptcy case, the company said in a statement.”

“Attorney Butch Wagner and Governor Newsom agree that PG&E’s $13.5 billion settlement is insufficient for Camp Fire victims.”

Cal Fire Investigators have determined PG&E is at fault for the Campfire tragedy that destroyed 125,000 acres of land including homes, businesses, schools, and churches. PG&E recorded and informed state regulators of an electrical incident relating to a major electrical transmission failure just minutes before the reported start of the Campfire. Thousands of people lost everything, including some of their loved ones’ lives. If you or a loved one were affected in any of the following ways, please contact us for help in recovering your losses:
