The Hermits Peak and Calf Canyon wildfires have ravaged hundreds of thousands of acres across New Mexico, and remain out of control as of early June 2022. If you have lost your home to the Calf Canyon Fire, or lose your home in the future because of this fire, consider hiring an attorney to lead your insurance claim.
What Wildfire-Related Damages Could You Get Compensation For?
Your homeowners claim may cover much of the damage from the Calf Canyon Fire, if not all of the damage. You may have additional forms of insurance to protect all property that could be harmed by a fire. Your coverage will ultimately be determined by the specifics of applicable insurance policies.
As the Insurance Information Institute (III) explains, your wildfire insurance claim may seek coverage for:
Your home: The structure that is your home is a massive investment. Of everything you lost in the fire, your home may have the greatest monetary—and sentimental—value.
Your personal belongings: Damage to personal belongings, either within the home or on surrounding property, generally entitles you to reimbursement from your insurance company.
Any vehicles damaged by the fire: If cars, motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), or other motor vehicles were damaged or lost in the Calf Canyon Fire, we will seek fair compensation.
The cost of temporary housing: If you must pay out-of-pocket for housing while your home is being rebuilt, or you decide where to relocate, then your insurance policy may cover some or all of the temporary housing cost.
New Mexico is home to several counties most likely to suffer extensive wildfire damage each year. You should have an insurance policy that covers your wildfire-related damage comprehensively. Our team will review your policy and fight for fair coverage from your insurer.
