State Farm Car Insurance

Anne of Farmington, MN on April 25, 2017Satisfaction RatingI was in an accident in which I was rear ended. What had happened was that the car in front of me had slowed suddenly, from about 60mph to 10mph, because of an incident ahead. As I braked to, of course, avoid an accident with the car ahead, I was smashed into from behind from a driver insured by a different insurance company. As often happens, he claimed that I suddenly stopped for no reason to his insurance. I told his insurance why I braked. Even though they accepted liability, they said I was also liable because their insured complained that I braked too hard. I really couldn’t believe that they would actually put liability on me for that. Luckily, it turned out to be a good thing, as I went through my own insurance, State Farm, for settlement as to not be out money for my “negligence”. My car was totaled and I was given a very fair settlement.The repair shop I originally brought it to told me later that State Farm is very fair when settling for total losses, and another friend told me the same. I received more money than I bought it for years ago. State Farm went after the claimant carrier, and let me know that I did nothing illegal or wrong, and that the other company has adjusters who put liability on victims even when it’s inappropriate, to get out of paying the full cost of the claim. I suffered greatly over the accident, and I hated being blamed for the accident when I did exactly as I should have – taken action to avoid an accident with the car in front of me. I cannot help if someone is tailgating behind me.Helpful?YesNo

Veneda of Newark, AR on April 24, 2017Satisfaction RatingAfter doing business with State Farm for many years, 40 to be exact with no tickets or accidents we are changing to Farm Bureau. After buying a new car and selling my older car to a family member they jerked me around by raising my premiums three times. I got insurance on my new car before I drove it off the lot. I kept insurance on my older car until my buyer got it insured in their name. I lost my accident free driving discount because they said since I cancelled my insurance on my older car that I sold, therefore it would be 3 years before I got that discount. The agent refused to do anything by saying that was their policy rules. The headquarters didn’t do anything either. They were oblivious to my good driving record. This was their way of getting more money from me. Everything fine until you need something. I will not recommend State Farm to anyone. They are incompetent and sorry. Don’t go there.Helpful?YesNo
