Local electric co-op that supplies my home with power had a major electrical fault this week. This fault was underground between their pole and my house. This fault caused a power surge that damaged my dishwasher, stove, two cordless phones, a VCR and an electric circuit in my electric panel box. I currently have three rooms without power.
The stove repair is over $200, no one will repair the VCR so I need to purchase a new one, I'll need to purchase new phones; the dishwasher will be serviced this weekend & an electrician will be on site Saturday to fix the electrical box damage. There still may be other damage not found yet.
The power company says they do not have to and will not pay for any of the repairs. My homeowners insurance has a $1000 deductible so most of the repair costs will come out of my pocket.
Is small claims court an option?
