In 2016 The Postal Service Paid $84M For Property Damage and Injuries


PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) – Karen Hart’s front porch is dotted with little holes.

“We didn’t know where they were coming from!” Hart said.

The thousands of holes have caused the wood to split, according to Hart. Contractors estimate the cost to repair the porch is about $5,000.

“It makes me sick,” she said.

It took months, but Hart said she finally figured out what she believes caused the mysterious marks.

“I heard a little struggle going on out here on the porch,” Hart recalled. “I opened the front door and looked and the mail lady was actually stuck in the floor of my porch!”

Hart also filed a claim with the USPS for the cost to replace her damaged porch. According to a letter Hart showed Target 12, the claim was denied. WPRI News
