SDG&E has already settled with the state of California for $14mm and the company has also begun to settle many of the individual smaller suits. However, individuals and business owners who lost valuable property in the wildfires are still waiting for their cases to resolve. All told SDG&E has approximately $1bil. in insurance policy limits to cover most of the losses. However, if need be the company will need to dip into corporate profits and/or raise rates to cover the balance of the settlements which could soar to well over the $1bil.insurance threshold.
The balance of the plaintiffs still waiting have now had to wait almost 4 years to get a chance to get compensation for their losses. And many of them are simply out of cash-flow to proceed with their daily living needs. Dave Kole, Legal-Bay’s CEO commented on the company’s decision to begin funding on the SDG&E San Diego wildfires, “We have followed this case closely, and believe that SDG&E’s liability is clear cut and they will avoid trial in most situations. We believe the time is right to begin assisting the victims of this tragedy with granting them the needed lawsuit cash advances to get their livess back on track prior to getting their ultimate settlement. We are the first and only company within the settlement funding industry -that we know of- that has stepped up in this regard.”
Legal-Bay has a west coast presence with affiliated office space in the phoenix and Scottsdale, Arizona market and the company is in the process of looking for commercial office space either in the Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco and Orange County, California market.
