On September 30, 2022, a $2.5 billion assistance act was signed to provide critical relief funding for those impacted by the Hermit's Peak/Calf Canyon wildfire.
This financial support package compensates victims affected by these fires resulting from a United States Forest Service (USFS)-prescribed burn that spread outside the project boundary.
Hermit's Peak/Calf Canyon Fires
If you have been impacted by the devastating Hermit's Peak/Calf Canyon wildfire, then you may be entitled to potentially significant compensation as part of the Hermit's Peak/Calf Canyon Fire Assistance Act.
The federal government signed this Act into law on September 30, 2022, allocating $2,500,000,000 to the people and businesses directly impacted by either the fires or subsequent floods. This Act covers 100% of allowable damages, and Flint Cooper is here to relieve your burden, and help recover your losses and ensure the process is as simple as possible. Representation by an experienced law firm, like Flint Cooper, is the best way to recover your damages.
Whether you are the owner of a residential or commercial property, the purpose of this legislation is to help you recover all tangible and intangible losses incurred by the wildfire. These losses may include:
- Property loss;
- Loss of subsistence (hunting, fishing, timbering, etc.);
- Business loss (uncompensated financial loss);
- Financial loss incurred in the recovery process (lost wages, relocation expenses, increased insurance and mortgage interest costs); and
- Additional loss (erosion, tree planting costs, newly required flood insurance, pet loss and personal injury).
If you suffered injury as a result of the Hermits Peak/Calf Canyon fires or subsequent flooding, you must file a claim supported by documentation, or the federal government will not compensate you for your damages. While you may or may not have extensive documentation surrounding your losses, we suggest you begin documenting them nonetheless. Although this exercise may be strenuous or stressful, doing so helps assign value to your loss and helps us maximize your recovery.
