State Farm is facing a class action lawsuit for allegedly failing to foot the bill for the repair of high value luxury vehicles.
The lawsuit, filed in Broward County, Florida on May 18, stems from the insurer’s ‘systemic and wrongful practice of refusing to pay for the proper and necessary collision repairs of its insureds’ high-value, luxury automobiles, in accordance with policy terms.’
‘In that regard, State Farm made it part of their business model to deny necessary collision benefits by refusing to pay appropriate hourly labor rates for high-value luxury vehicles,’ the lawsuit said.
It was filed after Ada Sasson, whose all-electric 2022 Porche Taycan was insured with State Farm for more than $100,000, sustained damage in a May 27, 2022 collision, according to the lawsuit.
Sasson brought her vehicle to a Porche dealership, where she was referred to a local Porche-certified collision shop for repairs, as required to preserve the vehicle’s warranty and ensure the work was completed per the OEM’s specifications.
