El Paso News

Storms like the ones that rolled through the Borderland Tuesday could leave a lot of people surveying the damage left behind from the rain and hail. 

People could be facing damaged property such as their vehicles, homes, and outdoor property.

State Farm Insurance Agent Cynthia Martinez told KTSM it’s best for you to be careful when filing a claim for any damage and avoid paying up front for any repairs.

“Any claim in any accident it takes a toll on us emotionally, it’s our personal property. Even though its a brand new car maybe or house, you don’t want to see your personal property damaged so just be very cautious of who you’re using to fix your property,” Martinez said, “Get two or three options before you get your car or house fixed.” 

Martinez shared most insurance companies have recommended auto body shops or companies that assist with fixing any damaged property. However whether rain or shine, the message is still clear.

“Drive extra safe whenever there’s weather happening. Not sunny El Paso weather, there’s always an accident. Whether it’s hail, rain or wind, be extra safe on the road El Paso,” Martinez said.

If you do notice your car or home is damaged, you can file your claim online, using an app, or calling the 1-800 number your insurance has.
