Mill Fire Attorney

The Mill Fire burned and destroyed homes north of Sacramento in September 2022, prompting the evacuation of thousands of residents. In less than 24 hours, it destroyed nearly 4,000 acres of land and shows no sign of stopping.

Early reports suggest that the fire may have started near Roseburg Forest Products. Our California Mill Fire attorneys are actively investigating this fire to determine if Roseburg Forest Products is to blame.

If you have suffered losses from the Mill fire, Reiner, Slaughter, Mainzer & Frankel, LLP, is here to help. We have handled thousands of claims for victims of preventable wildfires. We will work with you to help determine how you should be compensated for your losses in this tragedy.

We Are Investigating the Causes of the Mill Fire

The Mill Fire was first detected on Friday, September 2, 2002, in Weed, California, just 40 miles south of Oregon and 230 miles north of Sacramento. Spurred by high winds and heat, the Mill Fire grew with alarming speed, forcing more than 5,000 people to evacuate from the California communities of Weed, Lake Shastina, and Edgewood. Governor Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency for Siskiyou County.

Our California wildfire attorneys are actively investigating the Mill Fire to determine who bears liability for the millions of dollars of destruction. For over 40 years, we have helped thousands of California and Oregon families rebuild their lives after surviving a deadly wildfire.

Typical fire damage losses you can recover

If someone else is responsible for a fire that destroyed your home or business, we can help.
Fire damage lawsuits can not only help you recover your losses, but also make sure that the people responsible for starting the fire are held responsible. These lawsuits can force them to take preventative measures so other people don’t experience the same catastrophe in the future.

Compensation claims can include:

  • Damage to your home
  • Damage to your business property
  • Damage to your ranch lands or equipment
  • Business disruption
  • Lost income or living expenses
  • Emotional distress
  • Personal injury
  • Wrongful death

Here’s how we help:

  • We advance all costs necessary to investigate and litigate our client’s case.
  • We rely on our team of medical and investigative experts to work with the authorities and conduct additional investigations to determine if the fire was, in fact, caused by the negligent acts of a person or entity.
  • We gather evidence to show how the at-fault party acted negligently, and how that carelessness led to the fire.
  • We gather evidence of the losses our client has already faced, and we demonstrate, through economic projections, the loss in profit or income our client and their family will suffer as a result of the fire damage.
  • We present this evidence to the at-fault party. We then attempt to negotiate a fair resolution that takes into consideration all of the ways our client’s life has been impacted.
  • If the at-fault party does not accept our demand, we refuse to settle for less than what our client’s case is worth. We use our team of experts and our skill as trial lawyers to prove to a jury exactly why our clients deserve full compensation for their losses.
  • Our clients only pay us if we win.

Mr. Reiner and his team were extremely patient and kind with us. They explained everything twice if needed and went above and beyond what was required of an attorney. They made a very difficult situation bearable, handling parts of our case they normally don’t. If we ever needed an attorney again we’d definitely use them and definitely recommended then to others.
