Bushfires have burned
across the New South Wales State of Australia, destroying up to 30 houses.
The fires have been
igniting since September destroying vegetation in the drought-affected regions
of eastern Australia.
authorities estimate that the scores of blazes have affected more than 100,000
hectares of land, with some fires raging more than five weeks in some areas.
As of Tuesday, dozens
of houses in the rural town of Rappville and surrounding regions had been
consumed by the raging bushfires.
At least one person
is reported to have sustained serious burns as he attempted to protect his
property and was flown to the hospital.
The fires have been
triggered by the record-high winter temperatures and little rainfall. Australia
also recently experienced the hottest summer ever recorded.
Scientists have said
climate change is the ultimate cause of the fires.
Wrongful death and personal injury attorney Arin Khodaverdian, President and Managing Partner of Alpine Law Group, urges accidents victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights to the full extent of the law. Often, swift action by an experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”
While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. While this result is atypical and does not predict future outcomes, justice in this case help bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the family.”
