Austin Energy Seeks Money For Steiner Ranch Fire Lawyers
Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 23-Sep-2011
On Thursday, Austin Energy asked the Austin City Council to approve a $150,000 spending budget as they seek the aid of an outside law firm. Speculation continues to mount that the utility company may be responsible for the devastating Steiner Ranch fire that was sparked over Labor day weekend earlier this month.
Although the Travis County Fire Marshall is still seeking the results of laboratory tests before releasing the official cause of the blaze, Austin Energy is preparing for legal action that may take place as a result of Steiner Ranch fire damage.
State Farm Insurance is one of many entities that has brought on investigators to look more closely at the scene of the Steiner Ranch fire, taking a closer look at what may have caused the flames.
Despite its company status, Austin Energy does not have immunity or damage limits in cases where it may be to blame for occurrences, like the Steiner Ranch fires in Central Texas. Failing to clear brush, trees and limbs from areas surrounding Austin Energy lines are just some of the details investigators are looking at more closely, according to reports.
