Northwest Oklahoma Fires Cause Uncertainty

 

Wild Fires Consume Northwest Oklahoma
Wild Fires Consume Northwest Oklahoma

Recently, Northwest Oklahoma has been plagued by numerous fires.  The weather is warm, rain was in short supply, and the wind was really whipping.  We’ve been blessed to have some nice spring rains, but the previous dry, windy conditions create a potentially devastating opportunity for horrific fires.  We know that most of these fires did not just flare up on their own.  In most of these fires, the team at Ewbank, Hennigh & McVay can trace the cause of the fire to the actions of one or more person or company.  We are currently representing landowners with thousands of acres of land destroyed by fire.  Here are some things you should know about these fires:

  1. Even if the fire started well away from your property, you may be able to recover from a negligent party.
  2. Your various insurance policies may provide insurance coverage of which you are not aware.
  3. The origin of a fire can be narrowed down with impressive ability to determine the actual cause, and who caused the fire.
  4. Pictures are worth a thousand words.  Make sure to document your losses.  This includes burned land, fences, livestock, homes, equipment, and other similar items.  Pictures show the destruction, which is important to document the true amount of damage.
  5. Just because something did not catch fire does not mean it is not damaged.  Intense smoke damage can just as destructive as the fire itself.
  6. Numerous different state and federal agencies work together to provide assistance for fire victims.
  7. If you have been evacuated or displaced because of the fire, your insurance may pay for increased living expenses.

We have clients with property damaged in the Harper County Fire, Anderson Creek Fire, Major County fires, Woods County fires, and Woodward County fires.  If you or your family has any questions or concerns about these fires, contact us today.  Call EHM at (580) 234-4334.  Email us at info@northwestoklaw.com

Agrifest 2015 | Enid, Oklahoma – Chisholm Trail Expo Center

2015-01-11_0001

This was our first year attending Agrifest at the Chisholm Trail Expo Center in Enid, Oklahoma. Our booth was a total success!  We met a ton of folks and were able to discuss what we can do to help them with their legal needs.  We also saw several familiar faces as the show was very well attended.  Luckily, we were across the way from a beef jerky booth which certainly enhanced our first “booth” experience. We look forward to the years to come.

We raffled off two floor seats to the Alan Jackson concert at the Enid Event Center on April 18, 2015. We had hundreds of people enter and the lucky winner is… (drumroll please) Steve Detrick!

CONGRATS STEVE and thanks to everyone who stopped by to say hello this past weekend; we look forward to seeing you next year!
