State Farm Fire and Casualty Co.

$66,234 paid to policyholder for hurricane damage.

State Farm Fire and Casualty Co.

: A suit filed by Edward Gemmill against State Farm Fire and Casualty Co. accused the insurance companies for denying claims after hurricane damage. The Aug. 29, 2005, storm demolished Gemmill's home, leaving only a slab. The home was valued at $217,813 and the contents $107,080. A flood insurance policy paid him the maximum of $128,100, but State Farm had denied part of Gemmill's claim under his homeowner's policy, later giving him a check for $5,746 for wind damage. A federal jury sided with Gemmill and ordered State Farm to pay $66,234 for actual damages to Gemmill's home. [W LOX: INSURANCE HURRICANE CLAIM]
