LOS ANGELES, Sept. 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Mercury Insurance is ready to assist Floridians who have been impacted by Hurricane Ian with their auto claims. Mercury customers can report their loss or damage online anytime through Mercury's automated digital experience by submitting a claim at https://www.mercuryinsurance.com/claims/ or by calling the claims hotline at (800) 503-3724.
"The Mercury claims team will be there to help Floridians put their lives back together after Hurricane Ian," said Kevin Quinn Vice President of Auto Claims at Mercury Insurance. "We urge residents to stay safe by taking the necessary precautions for themselves and their family during the storm and when returning home.

Policyholders affected by the storm can file a claim through Mercury's web-based app or by telephone. Drivers filing a claim digitally will be directed through a series of easily understood prompts. Customers will also be able to indicate where their vehicle was damaged as well as their location, along with any photos submitted from their smartphones, allowing them to file their claim quickly and accurately.
Quinn advises policyholders to follow a few simple procedures after the storm to help the claims process run smoothly.
When filing a claim
- Contact Mercury immediately to report your loss.
- Be prepared to provide your policy number.
- Do not remove debris that may be related to your claim or move a damaged vehicle.
Steps after filing a claim
- Prepare a detailed inventory of any damage to your vehicle.
- Offer photos or videos to your claims representative or submit them digitally.
- Keep records and receipts for additional expenses that may have incurred and provide copies to your claims representative.
