While natural occurrences such as lightning strikes can cause forest fires, a large number of these incidents occur due to human error and carelessness. There have been numerous cases of wildfires caused by problems with utility equipment, including faulty power lines. We have also heard of instances where controlled burns got out of hand, building to raging infernos that threatened the safety and property of people living nearby. Human carelessness, for example tossing lit cigarette butts or neglecting burning camp fires, has also contributed to massive fire devastation.
Other than extensive property damage, forest fires can also result in personal injury and death. If you have suffered injury as a result of a forest fire abroad, then you might have valid grounds for making a compensation claim.
