Commissioner Jones issues emergency notice to help expedite claims in California fires
SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones today issued a notice to insurers requesting they agree to expediting claims handling for Camp and Woolsey wildfire survivors in order to help them begin the recovery and rebuilding process more quickly.
With nearly 8,000 homes destroyed in both fires and up to 50,000 still at risk in the Woolsey Fire, thousands of residents face the long and painful task of recovery, which often includes trying to reconstruct destroyed or missing documents.
In an effort to speed recovery, Commissioner Jones is asking insurers to agree to claims handling procedures to bring more timely payments to policyholders and provides greater flexibility with some deadlines and documentation typically required by insurers.
