Dallas, TX asked in Contracts and Construction Law for Texas

Q: How do I start a law suit on a solar company. The installers caused my house to burn down

The installers had to reset the tracts across the entire roof left original holes open my house flooded they sent an inspector out he said they were at fault. The company said they would fix my roof This was in December 2020 we started having issues with the outlets and breakers popping we would call them weekly asking February 15th 2021 I woke up to our house burning down thankfully my family made it out alive. A couple of days later I received an offer for the roof replacement. My personal insurance did not cover the panels or the remodel being done because they had not finished the job for the insurance adjustment to come out and write a new policy. I had a rent to own contract with my landlord and paid house off with insurance money planning to rebuild on my property only to find out that now I wasn't the owner

A: I am terribly sorry this happened to you.

I recommend not taking serious legal action on your own, since there are many legal issues, deadlines and hurdles which are difficult to cross as a pro se plaintiff.

But to answer your question you would have to sue the company and serve their registered agent to tort damages and contract damages. Their insurance should kick in to pay some damages. Without more facts, its a tad bit harder to answer your question.
