Refusing to give into State Farm’s deny, delay, and defend tactics, a Michigan woman filed a personal injury lawsuit. The 23-year-old woman was seriously and permanently injured in December 2011 by a man who was texting while driving and ran a red light. According to the suit, the woman suffered multiple injuries, including traumatic brain injury, severe neck spasms, an injured disc and permanent nerve damage in her legs, necessitating use of a boot or brace to walk normally. A jury recently awarded the woman $1.14 million.
Carrying adequate insurance coverage can provide peace of mind by ensuring that you have a safety net if you are ever injured or suffer a loss. We rely on insurance; we assume it will be there when we need it. When insurance companies like State Farm refuse to pay adequate compensation, the victim is forced into a lengthy litigation process. “I wish that State Farm would re-evaluate its position when you have someone who’s so severely injured,” said the woman’s attorney. They choose to roll the dice because it’s so difficult to get a jury verdict in favor of an injured party.”
Sadly, I don’t believe this $1.14 million verdict will change State Farm position in adequately paying claims. State Farm has extremely deep pockets and its strategy is to make collection, even for its own, premium paying, policy holders, tremendously difficult, if not impossible, without a jury trial. They happily take your money in premiums, in exchange for what they call “coverage”, but when you need the benefits or coverage you paid for State Farm and its ilk will be vicious in defending its pocketbook.
When insurance companies refuse to do the right thing, when they refuse “like a good neighbor” to “be there”, you should not have to settle for less than you deserve.
