COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., June 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Following storms with baseball-sized hail that moved through the southern edge of Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas on June 13, Farmers Insurance® has deployed catastrophe response claims representatives, other personnel and resources to help assist customers.
Head of Claims Customer Experience for Farmers® Jim Taylor encourages residents to take a careful look at their homes and autos for potential damage. Customers should be cautious when attempting to drive a vehicle that may have severe damage to a window, headlights or taillights and consider whether the vehicle needs to be towed for repair. Homeowners are also encouraged to assess the outside of their home and look for potential hail-related damage, including damage to pools, hot tubs, patio furniture and other exterior structures.
Affected customers can file a claim by calling their agent, online at www.farmers.com/claims, using the Farmers® app through their smartphone or tablet, or by calling the 24-hour claims center:
Customers who have suffered damage to their automobile may be able to expedite the auto inspection process by filing their claim via the Farmers website or mobile app and scheduling a drive-in appointment electronically. Those filing an automobile claim via phone may also request the drive-in appointment option when speaking with their Farmers representative.
