your insurance company won't act as your subrogation agent to get your money back from State Farm? sounds like time to find a new insurance company. sure am glad I have USAAI got another letter from State Farm, after 7 months. They still won't pay.
My insurance paid. I'm out my deductible and my rates went up, because I had my first claim ever. And they devalued my car by the amount they paid for the repair!
