Should I file a claim through State Farm?
These kinds of situations are going to depend greatly on your current finances and insurance premiums. If you've previously had a clean record, an accident will typically increase your rates by about 20 to 30%.My car was towed by an apartment complex, will State Farm reimburse me for the towing cost?
Roadside assistance covers towing but it won't cover your car being towed by someone else. Your insurance company will not cover the cost of your car being towed from parking in the wrong location.What could be the reason State Farm increased my premium?
Since it is policy-specific, State Farm will be the only one who can answer why the rate increased by 39%. I am not aware of any insurance law in California that would cause an increase of 39%.I started a claim but canceled it with no payout. Why is it on my CLUE report?
Unfortunately, if you start the claims process, the insurance company can list it on your CLUE report through LexisNexis which contains your claims history — even if there was no payout or resolution. You can dispute with State Farm to see if they will remove it, but at this point, that is really the only option which is definitely frustrating.See More Questions
