    Good for them. State Farm was not good neighbors after Katrina and tried to deny thousands of claims that were legitimate until they were forced to finally settle them.

    Always go with a good, independent agent.

      Bill is CORRECT! Every “State Farm” agent, should have an INDEPENDENT AGENCY… on the side, down the hall, across the street, in the name of a spouse or other relative… When BLOOMINGTON or the Agency Field Office starts to TURN UP THE HEAT on the State Farm Agency, for LIFE Production or HOME AUTO LOSS RATIOS, the “State Farm” agent can just say… Hey, I’ll move the business to my spouses or relative’s Independent Agency across the street! Every State Farm Agent should have the LEVERAGE of an Independent Agency on the side… It’s LIBERATING!

    The parent company of State Farm Florida that denied a hurricane claim because the 2nd floor “wasn’t properly secured?”

    Shocked I tell you!

    I look at the results here and I am reminded of a lesson from my Grandmother. Her lesson? If you see a cockroach in your home, do not assume that it is the only cockroach in your home. Assume that there are others, and perhaps a lot of others, and act accordingly.

    This can’t be the only time State Farm has inappropriately denied a claim or pushed their responsibilities onto others. It is just a shame that it took 11 years, a superior court, an appeals court, and the US Supreme court to expose them. Good for the sisters, and hopefully, good for the homeowner.

    I wonder how many others will re-examine their claims experience after Katrina with State Farm AND Allstate? Hmmm….either you were in “Good Hands” or dealing with a “Good Neighbor”. Sounds like folks in the Gulf States should avoid ALL MAYHEM, like them.

      Except that State Farm wasn’t sued for denying claims like this, and like Nationwide, won most of their claims. They also weren’t accused of shredding engineering reports as State Farm did.

      Haven’t seen a “Jake” wearing khaki’s commercial in a while.

        Are you specifically talking about the Jake commercials or State Farm in general? I also haven’t seen a Bud-wei-ser frog commercial in a while either. It doesn’t mean that the company isn’t advertising nor thriving for that matter.

    They always use the term “very disappointed” when they lose and then they appeal and usually buy their way out. But now since this is final and they are stuck with the verdict, they COMMITTED FRAUD. They have to live with it. Maybe their actions are finally coming back to bite them. About time.
