Utility liability for items damaged during a power surge/outing

5 posts in this topic

I'm not sure if I'm asking this question in the proper spot but I tried so here goes.... there was recently a power outage/ surge in my area. My chest freezer in my garage had worked great until that point. After the surge the digital display continued to work the freezer made noise as if it WERE working. About a week later I noticed it was leaking. Every thing in the freezer was rotten totaling around 7-800$ in beef. Is the power company legally obliged to cover my freezer and the loss of food? Sorry if I was a bit long winded. Any advice is greatly appreciated

You can file a claim with the power company but just because there was a surge does not mean they are liable to you.  Check their website for info on how to file a claim and what document you will need.
