|Recent Questions||Can my new insurer cover a bodily injury claim made against me from my past accident when I was covered by a different company?|
Unfortunately, State Farm will not handle your recent bodily injury claim since you no longer have a policy with them. Progressive would be the one to handle that claim since that is your current active plan.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
|Should I choose a company that is cheaper for my auto insurance or my home?|
There's a couple of things to think about. While price is important, I would make sure you have equal coverage for your home and your auto from both Travelers and State Farm.Are some insurance providers better suited to my needs than others to get the best rate?
Because most coverage options can be matched across insurance companies, I think what you are really looking for is the best customer service/claims support for the best cost. Right off the bat, I know Geico probably wouldn't be an option for you with a leased vehicle.What is an ADOT Code?
The code for it should be listed on your ID card from Travelers. If you don't see it on there call Travelers Customer service line.My daughter got into an accident using my vehicle, will my insurance pay for the damages she caused?
Normally the liability coverage on your policy should pay for damage caused to another driver, even if your daughter wasn't currently listed on your policy. However, some insurance companies require anyone who lives in the household be listed on the policy - either included or excluded in order for them to properly determine the risk.See More Questions
