Marshall Fire claim eligibility

On December 30, 2021, the Marshall Fire sparked in Boulder County, Colorado. While the cause of the wildfire is still under investigation, it is believed that the Marshall Fire started on the property of the religious sect known as Twelve Tribes. The fire was so powerful and destructive that it burned over 1,000 homes and 6,200 acres, blasting into Louisville and Town of Superior on hurricane-force winds. According to the Boulder County Assessor, the cost of the damages is estimated at $513 million.

Unfortunately, hundreds of families were left without a home, evacuated, or suffered major smoke injuries following the Marshall Fire, one of the most horrific natural disasters in U.S. history. For this reason, if you were a victim of this wildfire, we encourage you to get in touch with our expert team, as we can promptly evaluate your case to determine whether you are eligible to file a claim with your insurance company and with whoever is responsible for the Marshall Fire if someone will be found liable.

The destruction caused by the Marshall Fire

The Marshall Fire was so terrible that it also took with it several human lives, the first reported being 69-year-old musician Robert Sharpe, a resident of Boulder County, and one of the two persons deemed missing at the beginning of the investigation. The man was a musician who had played throughout Boulder for decades. However, the entire number of deaths is not exactly known at the moment. In addition to human lives, the Marshall Fire has also destroyed or severely damaged a series of businesses in the county, including:

  • At The Beach Tanning
  • Subway
  • Royalty Nails & Spa
  • Tesla
  • You You Massage
  • Amazon
  • Boulder Community Health
  • Costco
  • Hampton Inn
  • KeyBank
  • Office Evolution
  • Superior Liquor
  • Target
  • Youthbar Med Spa

A sliver of hope within these challenging and dark times for Boulder County community members who were impacted by the Marshall Fire is that they can visit the Disaster Assistance Center to access a wide range of services, including property loss and filing claims for assistance, financial and food assistance, mental health supports, transportation, and many more. Nevertheless, another essential action people whose health or properties were damaged by the wildfire can take is filing a claim with their insurance companies to receive compensation for what was not covered by their policy.

The eligibility criteria for filing a Marshall Fire claim

Anyone directly affected by the destruction brought about by the Marshall Fire is entitled to financial compensation from their insurer, as well as from the person or entity that caused the wildfire if this is the case. To become eligible to file a Marshall Fire claim, you must meet one of the following criteria:

  • you suffered injuries as a result of the Marshall Fire
  • your property was damaged by the Marshall Fire
  • one of your family members died because of the Marshall Fire

It is very important to remember that you can obtain financial compensation only for the damages your insurance does not cover. Most insurance companies do not cover vegetation that is outside of your property, compensation for the suffering created by the wildfire, and natural vegetation. Last but not least, you need to file your claim within the statute of limitations, so it is best to contact us as soon as possible to make sure you will not lose your right to compensation.
