Property Damage Recovery ProgramBy Jim Thyden, Insurance Programs Manager
The Authority offers coverage and resources for many individual programs. One of the lesser-known programs is the Property Damage Recovery Program. This program was designed to assist members seeking recovery from a party responsible for damage to property in the member’s care, custody, or control.
When a member suffers damage to property that is either not covered in the California JPIA property program or the damage is below the deductible amount of the property program, the Authority has partnered with two claim administrators to assist members who wish to recover these monies from those parties responsible for the damage. The claim administrators work directly with members to investigate and pursue recovery. This often makes sense for the member by providing a way to hire professionals who have the expertise to determine fault; work with responsible parties, insurance adjustors, and attorneys; navigate the negotiation process; and collect funds.
More information on each of these programs is available on our website at https://cjpia.org/coverage/additional-programs. If you have any questions, please contact Jim Thyden, Insurance Programs Manager, by email or at (562) 467-8784.< Back to Full Issue Print Article
