State Farm Personal Property Class Action Settlement ( California Only)
Proof of Purchase
The Doan, et al. v. State Farm General Insurance CompanyCase No. 108-cv-129264 State of California, County of Santa Clara
This is a class action lawsuit that was brought against State Farm in Santa Clara County Superior Court. The case challenged the way that State Farm calculated depreciation on claims for loss or damage to your personal property. It was proven at trial that State Farm violated California law by unfairly calculating depreciation based upon the age alone of a damaged item without considering its condition at the time of loss. This ultimately resulted in over depreciation and inappropriately reduced payouts. Further, the Court held that State Farm violated California law by failing to accurately notify its policyholders in writing of the basis or reasoning for its calculation of depreciation.
