Fire Damage in Los Angeles
Potential fires are a fact of life in California, and most property owners carry insurance to protect them in the event of fire or smoke damage to their buildings. The Santa Clarita Valley “Sand Fire” in July 2016, for example, burned more than 38,000 acres and destroyed at least 18 homes, as reported by the LA Times. This raging wildfire deposited soot, smoke, and ash over an extensive section of the state, including the greater Los Angeles area.
It is important to act quickly when fire has caused damage to your property. Unfortunately, insurance companies are often slow to respond, particularly when a wildfire in the area has resulted in many claims. When the insurance company responds, the representative may not take the time to thoroughly evaluate the full extent of the damages.
