Accused Of Stealing My Own TruckJan 16 2013
My truck was stolen from a dealership lot and found 4 days later. It has been completely stripped - no tires, rims, carpet, seats, dash equipment, etc... Farmers denied my claim. They said that I stole the truck or that my son had something to do with the theft. I have no criminal background or record. I am not in debt. The men who stole my truck and were actually a part of a theft ring in the area were caught. They are now serving state and federal prison time. Farmers came up with another reason to deny my claim. They said that I made false statements during a deposition. I found out that I could end up spending an estimate of $25,000 to sue them and still if I won my case, Farm Bureau was going to appeal the courts decision, no matter what. I asked for my insurance premiums back. They gave me back about half of what I had paid and charged me a cancellation fee. They canceled the coverage on my car when the renewal was to take place.
