Deadline To File Columbia Gas Claims Extended To January 31, 2020
The deadline to file claims related to the 2018 Columbia Gas over-pressurization event has been extended by court order to January 31, 2020.
Along with co-counsel, Bailey Glasser Partner John Roddy is holding two more town hall meetings with the community to help people file claims and answer any questions. Everyone impacted by this event is encouraged to file a claim -- even if they already filed a claim through their insurance carrier or the Columbia Gas-managed process.
The $143 million settlement will pay claims for major losses, as well as any minor inconvenience experienced. These events include evacuations, evacuation expenses, loss of gas service, heating expenses, lost wages, lost business income, property damage, and emotional distress.
Both English and Spanish-speaking agents will be on hand to assist and answer questions regarding the claims filing process. The dates of the town hall meetings are listed below.
- January 18, 2020 - 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM
- January 25, 2020 - 12:00 PM - 3:30 PM
All residents attending the town hall sessions should bring with them proof of residency in the class area for the period of September 2018 (e.g. utility bills, pay stubs, cell phone bills, lease agreements).
