State Farm: The Company
State Farm is a group of insurance companies that provides services within the United States. While the primary business is providing auto insurance through their sub-company: State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company, State Farm also provides coverage for a wide variety of personal injury and property damage. State Farm was founded in 1922 by retired farmer and insurance salesman George Jacob “G.J” Mecherle. Originally a single-line auto insurance company, State Farm moved on to provide roughly 100 products and services in five different line businesses. Today, the company provides insurance coverage for more cars and homes than any other insurer in the United States. While the company provides insurance for a large number of people across the state, there is no guarantee that State Farm will pay out a lot of money on individual insurance claims. Many policyholders that don’t file an insurance claim against State Farm report good standing. However, policyholders that have brought an accident claim against State Farm have complained about their less than satisfactory settlements. For this reason, it is important to contact an expert State Farm insurance claim lawyer before settling your case. If you are being mistreated by State Farm’s settlement process, an accomplished attorney with expertise in State Farm injury lawsuits can assist you in suing State Farm for the damages. Our attorneys at Normandie Law Firm are experienced in recovering compensation for victims injured in all kinds of accidents involves State Farm insurance policies. Some of these accidents include:

  • Auto Accidents
  • Bicycle Accidents
  • Boating Accidents
  • Dog Bites
  • Dog Attacks
  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Pedestrian Accidents
  • SUV rollover accidents
  • Slip and Fall Accidents
  • Truck Accidents
  • Wrongful death accidents

The process of filing a lawsuit for a proper compensation claim changes depending on the different circumstances involved in your accident. While they all fit under personal injury lawsuits, there are a variety of ways in which to determine who is liable for the damages.

State Farm Auto Accident
It has been reported that roughly 1.3 million people die in road accidents every year, and an additional 20-50 million people are left injured or disabled. These statistics are clear reason why auto accidents can be incredibly damaging to those who endure them. On top of the physical injuries that victims are put through, there is also the financial burden that is placed upon them. What with medical expenses, loss of wages, and not to mention the residual property damage, it can be difficult to overcome the damages car accident victims are put through. For this reason, it is important that you receive the full compensation deserved to you by a State Farm auto insurance claim. Listed below are some of the injuries that a victim can endure as a result of an auto accident:

  • Brain Injuries (Traumatic Brain Injuries or TBIs)
  • Other Head Injuries
  • Neck and Back Injuries
  • Chest Injuries
  • Diaphragm Rupture
  • Pelvic/Abdominal Injuries
  • Leg and Knee Injuries
  • Foot Injuries

These are just a some of the injuries that a victim can sustain in an auto accident. While some of these injuries require only minor treatment, others may require extensive hospitalization. Hospital treatments can be incredibly expensive. This is why it is important that victims of auto accidents are not left alone to cover the full cost. Individuals purchase auto insurance hoping that in the event of a car accident they can receive compensation for their damages. However, sometimes auto insurance companies, like State Farm, will not offer a full compensation amount. When this is the case, the victim can pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the insurance company for the compensation that they deserve. Like all personal injury lawsuits though, it is required that the plaintiff prove the defendant was somehow at fault.

Determining fault in auto collisions is challenging at times, that is why it is important to collect all of the evidence you can immediately after the accident. The evidence a plaintiff can use may consist of photographs, eyewitness testimonies, or police reports. In these suits, fault doesn’t need to be proven beyond ‘any reasonable doubt,’ or to put it simply, it must be shown through clear and convincing evidence. This means that the standard of proof is relatively low, so allegations of fault don’t have to be indisputable. Regardless of the circumstances surrounding your auto accident, it is important that you seek legal representation from a lawyer experienced in State Farm cases to help you receive a more suitable auto insurance claim.

State Farm Truck Accidents
Accidents involving commercial trucks can be extremely dangerous, especially once sized up against an accident involving two personal-use vehicles. Typically a fully loaded commercial truck can weigh 20 times as much as an ordinary car. With this vast weight difference in weight and size, accidents involving these trucks can result in severe and even fatal injuries. A commercial truck can include smaller six-wheeled rigs, as well as freight sized eighteen wheeled trucks. Bulleted below are some of the injuries a victim can endure in a commercial truck accident:

  • Back and Neck Injuries
  • Broken Bones
  • Head Injuries
  • Internal Injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Rib and Torso Injuries
  • Seat Belt Injuries
  • Spinal Cord Injuries and Paralysis

If you or a loved one endured any of these injuries or any injuries similar as a result of a truck accident you can file a claim for compensation through State Farm. However, if you do not receive the full compensation owed to you, you can push for a truck accident insurance claim lawsuit. These lawsuits are typically filed against the company that owns the truck in question, and any settlement payouts will come from that truck companies’ insurance provider. For this reason, it is incredibly important to seek the assistance of an attorney who has experience in State Farm injury cases, as these large companies often have the resources to employ a host of legal experts to dispute your claims.

State Farm Motorcycle Accident
Motorcycle accidents can be truly devastating. Unlike most cars and trucks, motorcycles are not equipped with the same level of safety measures, leaving drivers and riders completely exposed to the full force of the collision. According to the U.S National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), out of every 100,000 registered motorcycles, 72 get into serious accidents. These are pretty high statistics considering how many people drive motorcycles on a regular basis. When a motorcycle is involved in an accident the insurance company of the driver at fault is typically deemed responsible for the damages. The rules of determining who is at fault depend on the state you live in, so it is recommended that you seek out the assistance of an experienced attorney to help navigate the complexities of your particular case.

State Farm Slip and Fall Accident
Slip, and fall accidents can cause injuries that range from minor bumps and bruises to severely damaging injuries that can leave a victim with lifelong debilitating conditions. Slip and fall accidents can occur almost anywhere, but when they occur on the property of a State Farm policyholder, there is a high chance that you can go to State Farm to receive some form of compensation for your injuries. However, if your settlement is less than desired, you have every right to seek legal representation to fight for full compensation for your damages. Listed below are some of the common injuries that a victim can suffer as a result of a slip and fall accident:

  • Head Injuries: Head injuries can range from minor contusions (or brain bruising) to more severe traumatic brain injuries or TBIs. Some TBIs can cause ongoing seizures, mood changes, cognitive impairment and other debilitating symptoms. In most cases, head injuries require emergency room treatment, or hospitalization and in more severe cases can result in death.
  • Hip Fractures: Hip fractures often require surgery and extended hospitalization. In some more severe cases, surgery may be necessary to implant an artificial hip. Out of every five hip fracture patients, one of them dies due to their injuries
  • Back and Spinal Cord Injuries: Injury to the spinal cord can lead to permanent paralysis, temporary paralysis and other severe neurological and sensory impairments
  • Shoulder Injuries: slip (trip) and fall accidents can result in shoulder dislocations or more severe forms of shoulder injuries called brachial plexus injuries. The brachial plexus is a network of nerves that connect the shoulder, arm, and hand to the spinal cord. These injuries are often treated with surgery followed by extensive physical therapy
  • Sprains and Fractures: The force of slipping and falling can cause minor to severe bone injuries. In some cases, the impact of the ground could cause minor sprains, in others; it could cause debilitating bone breakage that may result in temporary disability. Some of the common fractures that victims suffer include hip, spine, forearm, leg, ankle, pelvis, upper arm and hand.

In some cases, the injuries that result from a slip and fall accident can require extensive hospital care to see a full recovery. These treatments can be expensive, and in most cases can leave the victim with a large financial burden. This is especially true when they have to foot the medical bill with a decreased State Farm injury claim settlement. For this reason, it is important to seek legal representation to pursue a lawsuit to receive all the compensation you need for a full recovery.
