State Farm Criminally Investigated for Hurricane Claims Violations
State Farm is being investigated criminally by Texas authorities for their handling of hurricane claims over the past several years. Texas insurance authorities are also investigating multiple years of insurance claims handling. It seems that the "good neighbor" doesn't like paying insurance claims, although they never seem to have a problem cashing a premium check. The investigations are centering around how internal policies, procedures and e-mails were set up to justify more than $1billion in hurricane roof damage claims.
As we proceed through the hurricane season, Floridians should note that any insurance company's decision on handling a claim is subject to review by the homeowner or policy owner. There are administrative and judicial remedies available to homeowners whose claims have been denied.
