American Family pays more than $93 million after June storms in Colorado Springs and metro Denver

Summary

American Family Insurance has paid a total of more than $93 million to-date to Colorado customers with damage from June hail storms.

When storms hit Colorado Springs and metro Denver in mid-June, American Family Insurance quickly dispatched teams to assist customers whose autos, homes and businesses were damaged by large hail.

The June 12 hail storm in Colorado Springs led to almost 3,400 claims. Then June 18 and 19 storms in north and south metro Denver respectively resulted in another 12,000 claims. The majority were for autos, but homes and commercial properties were also damaged.

American Family has paid a total of more than $93 million to-date to Colorado customers with damage from the June storms. When they struck, American Family immediately dispatched teams to the state to assist affected customers.

“We had eight vehicle drive-in centers set up in multiple areas to make it easier for customers with damaged cars to have them inspected and their claims settled in once place,” said Tim Constien, vice president of Claims at American Family Insurance. “We’ll continue working with customers as long as they need us.”

In addition to the June and July hail storms in Colorado, American Family is assisting customers affected by severe weather across the country, including Midwest wind and hail storms and wildfires in the Western U.S.
