How Does Nationwide Insurance Handle Car Accident Injury Claims? | Colorado Springs Injury Lawyers
Call (800) 863-5312 to Speak with Colorado Springs Car Accident Lawyers for Free
If you have recently been in a car accident, you may be thinking of filing a car accident claim with Nationwide Insurance. Dealing with Nationwide in order to get the necessary compensation to take care of your car accident expenses may be difficult.
The process Nationwide implements requires individuals to provide a lot of information to the company, without receiving much in return. Further, Nationwide may tell you that it is extremely concerned about your well-being. This may lead you to trust Nationwide, not knowing that the insurance company is really only concerned about its bottom line.
If you or a loved one is dealing with Nationwide Insurance after being injured in a wreck, call Zinda Law Group at (800) 863-5312 for a 100% free case evaluation with our Colorado Springs car accident attorneys.
What Happens After I File a Car Accident Report?
Once you file a report, a Nationwide adjuster will review it. They will ask for certain facts about your claim, including the damage to your property. The adjuster will then determine what Nationwide thinks the value of your claim is based on the facts they have. The more evidence you have about the damage that was done to either you or your property, the more likely Nationwide is to treat your claim as valid.
Nationwide also might delay offering you an estimate on the amount your claim is worth. While Nationwide is delaying, you may accumulate further expenses. For example, you may need further treatment for your injuries, or your car may need more repairs.
Insurance companies like Nationwide do not make these delays without calculation. Nationwide knows that the longer it waits to offer money to a car accident victim, the more likely that individual is to be desperate for money, and the more likely that individual is to accept whatever lowball offer Nationwide comes up with.
What Happens When I Receive an Offer?
Nationwide will likely offer you an unfairly low offer. This is not necessarily because that is what your claim is worth, but they may believe that is what you are willing to accept. Ultimately, it is your decision whether to accept Nationwide’s initial offer. However, it is important to know that the process of recovering for your damages need not end on the note of Nationwide’s low offer.
Nationwide is accustomed to interacting with individuals who do not know the legal recourse they have. Negotiating as an individual with top insurance negotiators may be challenging and intimidating. However, an experienced personal injury attorney might be able to use their negotiation experience to negotiate on your behalf.
