What Can Victims of The San Bruno, California Gas Main Explosion Expect from their Insurance Company?


The recent San Bruno, California gas main explosion was a horrifying tragedy that claimed many lives, and even more homes. As Californians attempt to piece their lives together after the blast, they naturally want to know what they can expect from PG&E or their homeowner’s insurance companies. In general, if you are covered by homeowner’s insurance, your insurance company will pay you, and then they will go after PG&E for reimbursement.

Here is another important tip to make sure you get everything that you’re entitled to, no matter who ends up paying the bill: keep all of your receipts. If you have lost your house or it is uninhabitable due to the disaster, you are most likely entitled under the terms of your insurance policy to be reimbursed for all of your expenses incurred due to the loss of use of your home.
