1,500 insurance claims filed to State Farm following storms

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

(Press Release)

The weekend’s severe weather that produced hail and high winds resulted in significant damage across the Texas panhandle. More than 1,500 claims have been filed by State Farm customers so far across Texas reporting property damage. Many of 820 auto and 700 homeowner claims are reported near Lubbock. Since this weekend, local State Farm agents and claims specialists have been surveying damage and assisting customers with their recovery.  In addition to the local resources working the storm, a deployed catastrophe team has been dispatched to the area for storm response and recovery.

We encourage customers to start the claim process as soon as they can and take steps to prevent further damage. Customers to start the claim process by contacting their agent, calling 1-800-SFCLAIM, using the State Farm Mobile App or reporting a claim throughwww.statefarm.com

Insurance Considerations:

  • Document damage by taking photos
  • If you make temporary repairs to prevent further damage, remember to keep your receipts, so you’ll have a record for the claim adjuster for reimbursements. And take pictures of those repairs. 
  • While there are many good contractors in the state, please be wary of those going door-to-door who might try to capitalize on the storm:
  • Don’t pay anything up front.
  • Get everything in writing.
  • Get references and a physical business address of the contractor.
  • Do not accept an offer for a contractor to pay your deductible as an incentive to get your business.
