The excavator must always understand that it is the practice of utilities to issue a claim for damage. It is important for you to collect all factual data, take pictures, and keep the utility locate information in a file for future reference.
Gathering facts is a time sensitive matter and should be done as soon after the incident occurs. URclaims field investigations will provide you with a full incident report. The URclaims team knows what to look for when a utility damage occurs.
URclaims provides consulting services to utility owner/operators, contractors, home owners and insurance industry representatives:
Do you have more then one fulltime staff managing your utility locate program? Did you hire seasonal support staff to manage locates? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you should explore the new UExcavate web application which will manage the process and reduce staffing requirements.
