If you believe you have experienced damages due to PUD negligence, your situation may be reimbursable via a tort claim by filling out the form below. However, the vast majority of outages are not due to PUD negligence. Most are unpredictable and unavoidable “Acts of God” such as windstorms, fallen trees, car accidents (downed pole), etc. that are beyond the control of the PUD and therefore are not eligible for claims. We highly recommend you install whole home and individual circuit surge protection to protect your home and personal electronics from damage.
