What our clients say

Read More
I had a very serious industrial injury and I was referred by a family friend to Brooks Cutter. He fought hard for my case and refused to back down to the large corporations we were up against.

Brooks and his team were very responsive, and I appreciate how well things were explained to me when they didn’t make sense. As a result of this case, I have the resources I need to move forward with my life. I would certainly recommend Brooks Cutter and his team to my family and friends… Actually, I think I already have.

Frequently Asked Questions

The cause of the Dixie Fire is under investigation. Still, authorities, including Butte County District Attorney Mike Ramsey, are already suggesting that equipment owned by utility giant Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) likely helped start the fire. PG&E recently admitted that a fuse may have blown and sparked the fire in some of PG&E’s equipment.

Almost 14,000 structures in the northern Sierra Nevada are still under threat from the Dixie Fire. The fire continues to burn erratically, so its direction is unclear. However, you can find up-to-date reports and evacuation orders from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.

Fortunately, there are no reported deaths from the Dixie Fire. However, thousands of Northern Californians have already lost their homes. Entire towns have even been wiped out, including Greenville in Plumas County, about 150 miles north of Sacramento. The fire swept through and destroyed the 1,000-resident community in less than two hours.

Experts suspect PG&E of having contributed to the start of the fire. In June 2020, PG&E pleaded guilty to 84 counts of involuntary manslaughter for deaths resulting from the Camp Fire, which destroyed Paradise, California, in 2018. In the criminal action against PG&E, the company admitted that its equipment started the fire. The grand jury report that led to the criminal charges against PG&E found that the utility company ignored warnings to fix its aging power lines and improve maintenance. The jury also found that that PG&E failed to follow state regulations.

If the Dixie Fire destroyed your property or personally injured you, you may have a claim against PG&E and other entities that may be held liable. Many victims of the Paradise Camp Fire have sued PG&E in court. These victims alleged that PG&E was negligent in the maintenance of its power lines. Although investigators have not yet determined the fire’s cause, PG&E will likely be a named defendant in future civil lawsuits.

f your insurance doesn’t cover your losses, you may be able to obtain compensation by filing a lawsuit against the responsible parties.

You should speak with the lawyers at Cutter Law to understand the different case-specific facts influencing a potential payout by your insurance company or responsible parties to recover your losses.
