Was: Incorporating opal
I was unfamiliar with this case - the absolutely amazing injustice
floors me! I have to say, though, that I am not at all surprised
about the role of State Farm in all of this.
We used to be - please note the past tense! - insured by State Farm.
I live in the country,on a hill, over a fairly large vein of iron
ore. I had a well. Weather happens. The combination of hill and iron
vein attracted (and still attracts) lots of lightening strikes. Our
pump got hit several times by lightening, with resulting insurance
After one such hit and claim, my State Farm agent asked me to come
to town and sign some paperwork. I showed up at his office, and he
had a statement he wanted us to sign that said that “we would not
permit lightening to strike our pump again.” For real!
My husband assured him that he wished he had the sort of direct line
to the man above that would allow him to issue this sort of
Needless to say, we immediately switched insurance companies, and
are now with Auto-Owners, which I cannot recommend highly enough.
My in-laws did not switch, got hit by lightening, and when through
over a year of agony with State Farm giving them grief over the
settlement at every turn.
Live and learn.
