As Hurricane Rita strengthens across the Gulf of Mexico and moves toward the Texas shoreline, Mercury Insurance Group emergency response teams have mobilized to support its auto insurance policyholders with claims resulting from Hurricane Rita. The response teams are now in place and prepared to immediately deploy to impacted areas as soon as allowed by Texas officials.
Mercury staff appraisers will begin canvassing damaged areas in easily identifiable claims response vehicles, literally making house calls and -- as necessary -- issuing checks to its impacted policyholders, according to Richard L. McCathron, Vice President Western Region of Mercury General Corp.
Mercury policyholders with questions regarding their coverage for damage caused by Hurricane Rita should call Mercury's toll-free claims hotline, 800-503-3724.
Mercury General Corp. (NYSE: MCY) provides insurance to individuals, families, and businesses.
