Complaint Review: State Farm
State Farm ignore auto diminished value claim Nationwide
*Consumer Suggestion: State Farm diminished value claim in Texas
In May 2017, my car was T-boned by a State Farm insured driver causing damage of two doors, B-pillar and the frame. After repairs, I had my car appraised by Texas Auto Appraisers Group. They calculated that my car suffered $1,800 diminished value from the accident. I submitted the report to State Farm. But the agent (Steve Raleigh) and his manager (Dave Stanesic) plainly said State Farm does not recognize there is diminished value because my car was repaired. They do not want to discuss about it.
State Farm's opinion is clearly wrong because the value of my car did suffer a significant loss comparing pre- and post-accident value, even though it was repaired. I believe they are ignoring the law and deliberately rip-off consumers by not compensating them fairly. They are unethical and clearly do not want to take responsibility of the damages that were caused by the people they insure.
