Q: I was in an an accident where I was found at fault. I had no insurance so now I owe State Farm. How to settle this?
Who can I contact to settle this with them? My license is suspended now and I just want this over with.
A: You may contact the lawyer whose name appears on the paperwork regarding the judgment taken against you. You may also contact State Farm directly requesting they tell you who you need to speak with regarding a judgment taken against you. If the judgment was taken in Small Claims Court, contacting that lawyer who represented them in Small Claims Court is the best way because he or she would be a Collections lawyer able and willing to talk dollars and cents. You must, however, make sure that you peg your license and ability to drive on any payments you make so that while debt still outstanding, you able to drive. But, it is not entirely up to State Farm. The MVD is also involved. You need to prove you have insurance before getting your license back. You may need a lawyer to structure this. Hope this helps.
