We notified our carrier, State Farm, that we were under insured through no fault of our own. In lieu of a recorded statement, they have responded with a 40 question survey. We are very interested in reporting to them only factual (and truthful) information. Before we shoot ourselves in the foot with our responses though, is there anyone who can review the responses and tell us where we might be damaging our claim?
