Those pesky homeowners in Mississippi who had their homes destroyed by Katrina AND who were lucky enough to have had their homes insured by State Farm….those pesky ungrateful home owners who had the nerve to SUE STATE FARM for denying their claims finally got some relief after 18 months…but the relief had to come though the legal system. Mississippi State Attorney General Jim Hood had to sue and pursue fraud charges against the ‘august insurer’ before claims were paid.
The next time you bitch and moan about lawyers and their propensity for litigation, find a family from Mississippi who had their home destroyed by Katrina, and who had insurance with State Farm. Those ‘damn’ lawyers got those people at least SOME of their money back.
Oh yeah…what was State Farm’s noble reaction to having to actually PAY claims in Mississippi? The big bully is taking their actuarial charts and moving out…no more home owner claims in Mississippi. I don’t have any insurance with State Farm. If I did, I wouldn’t have any by the end of this week.
I guess those greedy bastards in New Orleans are hoping for their share of the booty now…State Farm still hasn’t paid those claims.
Those silly homeowners only had STORM insurance…too bad they didn’t have FLOOD insurance…darn the luck.
Here’s to you State Farm…today’s WORST COMPANY IN THE WORLD.
