The word “depreciation” usually isn’t something known for giving folks a case of the warm and fuzzies. This especially holds true when the word is used in conjunction with a personal property claim. A recently settled case involving State Farm allows California policy holders to request a reconsideration for personal property claims filed between December 31st, 2004 and May 19th, 2014. The settlement comes on the winds of a full class trial that proved State Farm failed to lawfully calculate depreciation on personal property losses on settlements where the insured opted NOT to replace a damaged item. Those who believe they are eligible to request a claim reconsideration can begin by filling out and returning the postcard that was received with the notice of the settlement. A reconsideration request can also be made online by visiting www.statefarmpersonalpropertysettlement.com and clicking the Submit a Request for Reconsideration link posted at the top right hand side of the page.
