$10 million insurance bill estimated for recent snow

ATLANTA - As claims start to pour in, Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens said insured losses in Georgia from the January 28th snow storm is now estimated at $10 million.

"This estimate includes damages to insured homes and vehicles," Hudgens said. "Losses now stand at $10 million."

The estimate was based on claims activity reported to the Insurance Department by major insurance carries. Commissioner Hudgens emphasized that these claims reports are only a partial listing - not all companies have reported.

Commissioner Hudgens also wants to remind Georgians that they can call his Consumer Services Division at 404-656-2070, or outside the Metro area at 1-800-656-2298 if they have questions about a claim or if they are experiencing difficulty reaching their insurance company. Phone lines are open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday.
