Issue Denials Even For Own EmployeesFeb 19 2014
As power of attourney for my 84 year old mother I have been trying to get State Farm to honor her policy for a foundation problem caused by underslab plumbing. I have hire experts in the field and State Farm has as well. Every document my expert writes states the plumbing caused the foundation and even State Farms reports from boring holes in the slab supports my experts claims in every way. State Farm just continues to stamp "DENIED", I don't even think they read the actual report, just the first paragraph where their hired gun supports their denial. Then their report states exactly what my expert is saying. It is almost laughable but my mothers house continues to fail. DO I hire an attourney or just take to small claims. State farm agrees the policy is granfathered and they are responsible for plumbing related damages under the policy. Here's the ironic thing; My mother was employed by a State Farm agent for over 25 years. He says take State Farm to small claims court as the only way to get them to pay.
