Car Owners Face Insurance Headaches 2 Weeks After Hailstorm

 Monday, May 22, 2017


Thousands of people continue to deal with insurance issues nearly two weeks after a powerful hailstorm punished Colorado.
Drivers are still reporting long waits at repair shops as crews feverishly work to get ahead on their workload. State Farm, one of Colorado’s larger auto insurers, initially said it received more than 16,000 hail-related claims. Two weeks later, some car owners say they are finally getting the help they need. Susan Brach of Lakewood is one of the many still waiting since the storm hit on May 8. Golf ball-sized hail left behind severe damage on the body and windshield of her 2016 Outback SUV.
