Claims Purchasers Target Tubbs Wildfire Victims

Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger warn Tubbs Wildfire victims that claims purchasers are targeting those who haven’t yet retained a reputable law firm to represent them.

California, United States - February 11, 2019 / / —

The Tubbs Fire of October 2017 was a devastating blow to the local community in California. Over 23 consecutive days, the fire consumed properties including homes businesses and crops and caused the deaths of 22 people. The challenge now is to rebuild the community but with so many people uninsured and the area now at risk of other natural disasters such as flooding and soil erosion, the process will be complex.

To add further complications, many people are now being targeted by claims purchasers. A claims purchaser buys claims from individuals and companies offering a sort of quick win. This is, of course, a huge temptation for people who are as vulnerable as those who have suffered as a result of the Tubbs Fire but there is no guarantee that the monies received will match the compensation taking a claim forward themselves could provide. In fact, that is exactly what the claims purchasers are counting on to make their profit.

Northern California attorneys, Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger, would encourage any Tubbs Wildfire victims who have not already sought legal counsel to get in touch with them as soon as possible. They would also recommend that any victims receiving cold calls from law companies report these calls to the State Bar of California immediately. Disappointingly, many of these companies are making false statements to scare victims into unnecessary action.

Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger is to continue in their pursuit of a separate and independent basis for liability against PG&E for the Tubbs Fire, believing that the evidence so far shows that the acts and omissions of PG&E management were responsible, as defined under the law, for causing the Tubbs Fire and its devastation.

Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger remain committed to providing the very best representation to all their clients and to the victims of the Tubbs Wildfire. Anyone affected by the fire can call at any time for free information and unbiased advice.

LOS ANGELES — Kenley Jansen escaped a bases-loaded jam in a bizarre ninth inning that saw both managers on the field trying to figure out what happened, and the Los Angeles Dodgers held off the New York Yankees 2-1 Saturday. Jansen struck out Mike Tauchman and pinch-hitter Gary Sánchez to end a matchup between the teams with the best records in baseball.
