2007 San Diego Wildfires

Stutman Law was instrumental in assisting with the recovery of millions of dollars for subrogated insurance carriers arising out of the 2007 San Diego, California wildfires. There were at least 10 identified wildfires in San Diego, three of which involved electrical power line failures that were owned and operated by the local utility company. These wildfires combined and caused an estimated $1.5 billion in damages. Local authorities and investigators retained by Stutman Law determined the fires were caused by power lines coming into contact with each other or with trees. By establishing that the utility company was liable for the fires, Stutman Law utilized the theory of inverse condemnation and ultimately obtained substantial, multi-million dollar recoveries from the utility company and its liability insurers for its carrier-clients.
