Wildfires are currently burning over 40,000 acres in California, and that’s just from three current fires in southern and central parts of the state. The Clayton fire in Clear Lake and the Chimney Fire in San Luis Obispo County have also claimed 220 structures, many of them homes.
Some insurance policies cover natural disasters, but many do not. And not every insurance settlement covers the cost of losing a home or other damage. So what happens if you suffer loss or damages from a wildfire? Can you sue?
