DON’T WAIT: You Have Until December 31st to Claim Camp Fire Compensation

Residents have only a few more weeks to file a claim for compensation relating to the deadly Camp Fire that broke out in Paradise, CA one year ago. December 31st at 5pm is the cut-off for claims to be made in the Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) Company Bankruptcy Case. The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of California, where the case is being heard, extended the deadline to file claims for losses or damages arising from fires that occurred in Northern California prior to January 29, 2019—the date PG&E filed for bankruptcy. The wildfires were the deadliest in the state’s history, displacing thousands of families and taking 85 lives. According to officials, Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) was concluded to be responsible for the blaze.
