I have had State Farm insurance on my cars for 35 years and my home for 22 years, never filing a claim. We had a couple of bad hail storms last year and all four of the houses surrounding mine were judged to have hail damage (as well as several others on my street and many others in surrounding neighborhoods) and received new roofs paid for by their insurance companies (not state farm). I had one of the roofers doing work on my neighbor's house look at my roof and he confirmed that my roof also had hail damage and gave me an estimate. I turned in a claim to State Farm, who sent an adjustor out to look at it and (surprise! surprise!) said that my roof did not have hail damage and that they would not pay. I am going to switch insurance companies, probably to either Allstate or Farm Bureau.
I have been a customer to state farm at this location since 2003. I had never filed a claim since. Until near the end of 2009 I'm in need of a new roof. Call the agent, she come by, look at it, and said will send her guy over to give me an estimate of how much I can get state farm to help me out with the cost. 8 months later nothing happen. No one has ever showed up…my request of address change never got change. When I call the office, she decided to transfer me over to another agency because she didn’t want my claim under her agency name. Now my roof is falling a part, this state farm agency decides to do nothing about it. My entire family have policy with State Farm (9 sibling) and this is how they treat us. How fair is this? When I need them the most they turn their back on me.
I was with StateFarm for 6 months, due to there NEGLIENCE of how a policy actually suppose to be handled. How do I pay a for a policy for several months to find out that I was never on MY OWN policy??? Then my vehicle is stolen, stripped, and burned and they investigate me. Investigated everything in my life to find NOTHING or any connection. But I am still forced to pay a car note and insurance for a car that is not in a SHOP, being REPAIRED or REPLACED. Sad part about it is I have been without my car since OCT 2009 and now its APR 2010. Once again can I ask what am I paying insurance for??? "Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there.®" that is a good slogan...(BS)...but I should have known when I found out that they are not a 24-hr business (claims only)and they have LOCAL offices that only work regular business hours and weekend information is a complete FAILURE.
On December 15th 2009, my husband was driving home from his brothers in our 02 Honda Accord LX Coupe. There...
STATE FARM INSURANCE TRY’S TO CONVICT AN INNOCENT MAN!
THE HIGHLY GUARDED INFORMATION SITE
EVERYTHING ABOUT BACK INJURIES THAT INSURANCE COMPANIES AND THE WORKERS COMP SYSTEM DO NOT WANT YOU TO KNOW!
This site contains information that insurance companies, lawyers, doctors and the workers comp system try to keep guarded from public knowledge.
I HAVE A HOME OWNERS POLICY WITH STATE FARM INS. I NOTICED ON 3/26/09 GRAYISH FILM ON MY WALLS. STATE FARM "NEVER" CAME OUT TO EXAMINE THE GRAY WALLS/DUST. I WAS TOLD IT DID NOT MAKE SENSE TO FILE A CLAIM THAT "APPEARED TO BE LESS THAN MY DEDUCATBLE". TO MAKE A VERY LONG STORY SHORT, ..., STATE FARM INSURANCE COMPANY ACCEPTED THIS CLAIM AS A "PUFF BACK" ( SOOT FROM A RUNNING BOILER), WHICH MADE NO SENSE BECAUSE I HAD NO BOILER RUNNING. THE ADJUSTER "STEPHEN R" MADE MY LIFE A LIVING HELL BECAUSE I WOULD NOT ENTERTAIN HIS DIRECT/INDIRECT STATEMENTS THAT WERE GRAPHIC, UNPROFESSIONAL AND EXPLICIT. ONCE I REPORTED THIS ADJUSTER FOR HIS BEHAVIOR, STATE FARM MADE MY LIFE A LIVING HELL, DENIED THE CLAIM AFTER THEY ACCEPTED IT, INDICATING I HAD NO DAMAGE TO MY HOME. AFTER I WAS FORCED TO HIRE CONSULTANTS, AIR SPECIALIST AND TESTS MY HOME IS MOLD INFESTED AND I HAVE NOT BEEN LIVING IN MY HOUSE FOR 5 MONTHS. ME AND MY CHILD WHO IS CHRONIC ASTHMATIC WERE THROWN IN THE STREETS, WE COULD NOT GO BACK HOME, DURING THE HOLIDAY SEASONS I HAD TO FIGHT IN COURT WITH A TRO STOPPING STATE FARM, WHO CLAIMED MY HOME WAS "HABITABLE" AND ANY LOSS WAS PRIOR TO ME PURCHASING MY HOME. I CAN NOT DESCRIBE IN WORDS WHAT STATE FARM IS ALLOWING ME AND MY CHILD TO GO THROUGH. HOWEVER AFTER SO MUCH RESEARCH, I FOUND THAT WHAT STATE FARM IS DOING TO ME IS PART OF THEIR COMMON PRACTICES: PAVIA, NANCY GERDING, AND THE LIST GOES ON AND ON. I WILL NOT GIVE UP AND WILL PURSUE THIS TO THE END. TO DATE ME AND MY FAMILY ARE DISPLACED AND THEIR GOAL APPEARS TO BE TO BREAK US DOWN, FINANCIALLY. IT DISGUSTS ME HOW PEOPLE LIVE WITH THEMSELVES KNOWING THEY ARE MAKING OTHERS SUFFER FOR THE LOVE OF MONEY.
My Mom's jeep was struck from the side by a woman who was also insured by State Farm. It took State Farm over ONE YEAR to pay the claim, which was insufficient to repair her Jeep which had full coverage insurance at the time. To make matters worse, they claimed to the DMV, that the vehicle was totaled in the accident and that they took possesion of the vehicle and destroyed it, so once we did fix it, it was nearly impossible to re-register. It took nearly another SIX more months of their bureaucratic nonsense, in order to get the title back on a car that my Mom owned outright, I actually got angry enough to insinuate to the State Farm adjuster, that if she didn't take care of the mistake, the car would be stolen and driven through the side city hall, and she could have the privilege of explaining how a car they allegedly took posseion of and destroyed, ended up there. After that, I had a supplimental check and a new free-and-clear title 3-days later sent by certified mail. State Farm was certainly no neighbor I'd ever want!
I was with State Farm for a number of years as they claim to have some of the lowest rates around well after my fifth rate increase I finally said enough is enough. I started to shop around and got some quotes from a site called www.Nysurance.com . Alsmost every quote I got was significantly less than State Farm. It was almost as if they are the exact opposite as they say they are one of the most expensive out there in my opinion. I wanted to share my story with all of you out there that are also probley getting ripped off the same way I was. I hope this helps.
I was in a hit and run accident at the beginning of December. I called my insurance agent state farm Travis Primeaux and was given number to claims to file my claim. I called the claims office and filed my claim. After a couple of weeks I get a call from the claims office advising that the car would be a total loss. They were offering to pay a total of a little over 8, 000.00 minus my deductable since I was still making payments on my car they were paying the finance company 7, 000.00 then my GAP insurance would pick up the rest, which would have left me with only around 345.00 and without a car. I told the claims representative that I did not think that it was a fair offer and that by totaling my car I have no car or be able to offered to buy a another car. The representative clearly did not want to be helpful or provide me a better offer. So I called my insurance agent Travis Primeaux and explained the situation, he too wasn't helpful and didn't want to be involved in the issue telling me that it was between myself and the claims office. After a few days and with pressure from State Farm I was pressured into settling with their one and only offer and I still do not have a car, not even a rental car.
StateFarm insured motorist hit my car from behind. Statefarm denied my claim because they said i changed the lane and came in front of the lady that has statefarm. What other possible excuse can you come up with when you hit someone's car from behind. Insurance adjusters are not willing to pay my claim because they are saying their insurer was not at fault. How can you be not at fault when you hit someone's car from behind ? Where is the common sense. I hate statefarm and i will be all of my friends who have statefarm to cancel their policies.
I have been with StateFarm since May 09. My & husband initially set this policy up with both of our vehicles. Every month the payment was due there was always an issue with processing the payments. Several months went along and every month my husband called and made the payment by phone and made several changes to the policy. In the month of October 09, my husbands car was stolen. When he contacted the claims department about his car being stolen, a statefarm representative advise him that he WAS NOT on the policy. The vehicle was recovered a few days after the theft. It sat in the impound for several days, the claims adjuster delayed all processes of the entire claims, lack of information about the claim, failure to inform. As of today Statefarm states an investigation is still processing but no response as pretaining to what can be given. I am still paying a CAR NOTE & INSURANCE on a vehicle that they insurance company has in there hands.
On August 24th, 2009 my home was broken into while I was in bed trying to sleep. I heard the loud sound of...
INSURED POLICY HOLDERS BAIL OUT NOW! Insured with State Farm for over 30 years Auto, Home, RV, Boat and cycle in Michigan and Florida. July 2003 had MVA while in MI, broadsided, 2 serious personal injuries, vehicle totaled. Uninsured 18 year old illegal alien ran red light at 11:00 PM with no lights on fled the scene was aprehended, 3.6 alcahol, no drivers Lic and no Insurance. Charged with 5 felonies bonded out on $1, 000 cash bond never to be seen again. (MI COURTS) Had Florida insurance in effect with $10, 000 maximum medical payments. 1. S.F. lowballed vehicle pay off. 2. refused medical payment above $10, 000 citing Fl. policy. (MI no-fault statutes limit out of state drivers to $500, 000 each). 3. S.F shifted claim to MI. 4. S.F. Refused to pay $25, 000 Uninsured Motorist Claim (had to sue). Spouse had documented brain injury, lost ability to swallow required feeding tube, lost ability to speak and unable to walk 3 years after MVA. 4.S.F. prostituted Drs. to contrive Parkinsons Desease along with ALS to rule out any connection to the MVA. by giving inperson IME without the subject being there. Interesting the Dept. of Lic. & Reg. believes this is an acceptable practice (LYING) 5. S.F. refused to pay death benefits even after autopsy indicated no Parkinson, and ALS or any other desease. The spouse died of deep leg trombosis as the result of inactivity due to the conditions caused by thr MVA. 5. S.F contended that we were in violaton of MI no fault law because we were in MI more than 30 days and that we were required to purchase MI insurance. This is contrary to the opinion of the MI Ins. Com. that states I had more than the basic insurance required under my FL policy. An agreement was ordered signed by the court that was binding on both parties in October 2006.
future benefits were not waived. 6. S.F. has not paid a dime still claiming we were in violation of the MI no fault act, regardless of the agreement S.F.signed. My attorney James Scieszka refused to defend this claim stating this was a different matter? S.F got to him also, they will buy every one the courts alow them to do so
Two issues: First, I have paid my premiums on time for decades, but currently have no valid vehicle insurance despite remaining up to date on my payments. Second, State Farm agent violated my privacy which had the potential to put my life in danger. In 2008, the authorities recommended that I move and enter the state's Address Confidentiality Program (ACP) after I was the victim of extreme domestic violence once. I did that. But since my legal address is the State Attorney's office in my state capital and far from my "garaged address, " my insurance is invalid. State Farm told me if I would tell them my real address, they would keep it private. But I was too concerned that my attacker would hack in or bribe someone for the information. It was really much worse than that. One day, a friend called the State Farm agent, said she was me and asked for the current address on file. It was given by the agent instantly without questioning the identity of the caller which could have resulted in my death had the caller been my attacker. Then State Farm offered to make my address their address, but that is in violation of the state statute (law) and also their address is close to where I work. Therefore, my attacker could stake out the two potential employers close by and find me easily. Not an option. So, since State Farm cannot be trusted, I cannot let them know my physical address. They must only know my legal address (by Florida law) at the State Attorney's address for the ACP. State Farm refuses to give me written backup of their verbal claims that they will cover any claims I may have since I am a participant in the state's ACP. So, I am current with my insurance payments, by law; but I have no valid car insurance since I do not want to put my life at risk by disclosing my physical address to them and since "misrepresenting a garaged address" is a felony in this state and invalidates insurance. What to do?
The handling of cases at state farm is very bad. My car was in an accident, I was rear-ended, flipped and rolled over, It has been over 3 weeks, and I still have no car, none of my damaged property has been re-embuirsed, I have initiated contact 5 times, and State Farm agents give me different instructions each time, tell me will call me never call back, keep adding on red-tape, no offer or contact has been made on Medical reembuirsement, have nor been given a rental, my car that was totalled (as per the agend) has been taken away from the towing company's lot; even though I still own the car and have not sent the required power of attorney and title (no offer still). Now my agent calls me saying that I am not cooperating with State Farm; though State Farm's agents keep saying that they are at fault for not contacting me.
Will keep updating this complaint alongwith other blogs over the next few weeks tillmy claim is settled.
In summary; State Farm slogan should be changed to Like A Bad Neighbor is Never There.
I have a very bad experience with State Farm insurance, this issue is still an on going process. My house ...
I had a job related accidents in 1992 where I had an accident while working for a company. I was hospitalized for two weeks. Workers compensation started sending me checks for labor compensation every two weeks. The doctor who is sent in by workers comp discharged me. The company which I worked for fired me, their excuse was that I did not do my job correctly. I had pain from the accident, I did not have health insurance because I didn't receive enough pay. Workers comp turned their back on me because their doctors said I was fine when I wasn't. Seeing myself in this situation, I found myself a lawyer an put a claim against workers comp. Immediately the lawyer offered me medical attention. I got medicine prescribed to me and they obligated state farm to keep paying the labor compensation bebefits. This lasted a few months till my treatment was over. I was under surveillance by the insurance company like if we were living in a communist country, they listened to my conversation the took videos of me and they followed me everywhere. At the end I won the case. State farm charges the companies for their service. The lawyers charge their clients for their services. The doctors charge their patients for their services. I as a hard worker and father of a family, so I would not give the government expensives, I had to sue state farm. As a result of my accident that wasn't my fault I have a mark on me for the rest of my life by workers compensation. Whenever I apply for aa job whose company has workers comp I never get the job. Due to their system, by my social security I appear on their claim records. Any company that hires me, their insurance will go up. I have proof and knowledge of what I'm talking about. The only jobs that I can get are the ones that don't have workers comp and I get paid under the table and the salary is crap just like the work conditions. The government obligates companies to have workers comp, they should also obligate companies to give health insurance to workers. This way many families in this country would not be suffering what I am. Just like me there are many people living this way, marked for life by workers comp. This is the reason why there is so many homeless and criminals out on the street. To finalize, in a communist system if you screw the government the government will screw you over. In the u. S. If you screw state farm, state farm will screw you. I live in a free country but state farm has taken that freedom away.
We decided to sell our new car in 2009 - due to the poor economy. We had a man come from Alabama and he said he would purchase the car. He said he had sent payment - the finance company said payment was received and sent title. A few weeks later the finance company called and said they did not receive payment! <br />
After the man did not answer his phone any longer I called the police and did a Stolen Car Report. State Farm kept me hanging for a few more weeks then said they did not cover stolen cars IF the owner gave the keys to the thief!! <br />
How can this be right? Then they refer me to the info booklet and there it is - thought some of you might like to know how they will screw you!
In 2006 I went and bought the car I always wanted a Tahoe. Ya not some peoples dream choice but I alway...
