District 5 Damage Claims
Line Paint Claims
To report a paint damage claim in District 5 — which includes Berks, Carbon, Lehigh, Monroe, Northampton and Schuylkill counties — please call (610) 871-4135.
All claims are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and not all claims are honored as it is the vehicle operators' responsibility to operate their vehicle within the roadway lines and follow all warning and advisory signage. With line-painting operations being weather sensitive, they are conducted to provide the most cost-effective way of painting lines with the least disruption for the motoring public.
Note: When filing a claim, you will be required to provide the date, time, county, state route number and area of the occurrence.
Disclaimer: The commonwealth's Bureau of Risk and Insurance Management (BRIM) within the Department of General Services is responsible for determining if a claim should be paid. BRIM is not associated with PennDOT.
BRIM requires PennDOT to review all claims associated with state-owned highways before they make a determination whether to pay.
