Processing

All claims received are forwarded to York Risk Services, our third party administrator. York investigates all claims and makes recommendations. The York claim examiner will contact you, as the claimant, to discuss the claim and determine damages. The claim examiner then notifies the city as to whether the claim should be accepted or denied.

Note: In accordance with California Government Code, claims resulting from damage to personal property, personal injury or death must be submitted within six months of the loss, injury or accident. Claims concerning real property must be submitted within twelve months of the loss.

All claims are public record.
