A drunk driver driving a f350 drove through my store front 6/15/14. His company had insurance with State Farm and I filed an initial claim ($15,000) to start the repairs. Long story short, I am in a very rural area and it is difficult to get good trades to do repairs. I went through 4 glass companies, numerous carpenters, four sets of doors,three claim adjusters and one lawyer etc (still not working) till someone told me the statue of limitations was 2 years..Beginning of June this year I filed another claim with State farm for about $22,000. An adjuster called me said she had claim and she would handle it. We went thru what she said she was paying and what she said they do not pay. And what she wanted more quotes on.
JA: Because employment law
varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: Sorry, I hit enter before I finished with problem. I am in Texas and this has nothing to do with employment. to finish my story I went to work on documentation and on 6/14/16 after not sleeping for 2 days I sent her 42 pages of documentation for $32, 000. I included sales tax, shipping, installation, forgotten items, business loss and devaluation of my 100 year old building. She called my on 6/15 but when i called her back she was gone for the day. I called her on 6/16 and she told me state farm was not paying me any money because my claim was not paid the 15th.. I was in total shock being an accountant believing once you had a liability on your books it should be paid. I called a public adjuster and he told me he could do nothing at this point, but I might be able to sue the landscaping company who the drunk worked for. the
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: This story is about 3 days long. state farm did every thing to get rid of me after the initial check. the only agent that would talk to me was extremely rude. would always just say PJ file with your own insurance company. and I would say no, they will only increase my premiums or cancel my policy. I even had an employee call, and he told me they were so rude he would not call them again for me
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
