Filing A Claim
The Claims Division of the City of Pittsburgh’s Law Department will not have regular staffing available during this closure. Claims currently being processed as well as any claims that are received via the United States Postal Service or via fax during this public health crisis will be delayed in acknowledgment, processing, and finalization due to the reduction in necessary staff working on-site until this public health situation has subsided. We therefore request that if you have access to the internet and a printer, that you obtain your claims packet materials from the City’s website.
