The Poinsettia Fire erupted in Carlsbad California, near Poinsettia and Aviara. The destructive fire caused damages to individuals and businesses, including home losses, personal property losses and personal injuries. The Poinsettia Fire in Carlsbad started at the Omni La Costa Resort & Spa Golf Course. We filed our lawsuit against Omni La Costa in October, 2014.
We are a team of lawyers who have extensive experience litigating against large corporations on behalf of fire victims. We represented over 1,600 individuals and businesses that were affected by the 2007 San Diego Fires, which destroyed nearly one third of San Diego County. We brought claims against San Diego Gas & Electric, Cox Communications, Davey Tree, and other responsible entities. We also represent individuals and businesses against the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power relating to the 2013 Powerhouse Fire in Northern L.A. County (www.powerhousefirelawsuit.com). Our clients came from all walks of life, and they received zealous advocacy and excellent results. While the types of damages that are recoverable vary from case to case, we pursued – and obtained – damages for our clients’ economic losses and emotional distress.
Our approach in handling these cases was unique. Rather than settling all of the cases as a group, we handled each case individually. This means that we took care to evaluate each client’s individual losses. Our clients included homeowners, renters, people without insurance, individuals who suffered personal injuries, commercial avocado and citrus growers, and other business entities.
We take the time to ensure that our clients are also compensated for the emotional harm they suffer as a result of the fires. The law provides for compensation for the particular grief associated with loss of your home, loss of your possessions, and being placed in fear for your life from fire. We fight to maximize compensation for the emotional distress that people suffer during and after a destructive fire.
