Call (800) 863-5312 to Speak with Colorado Springs Injury Lawyers for Free
If you have recently been injured in a accident, you may be in the process of negotiating an injury claim with Nationwide Insurance. Nationwide has not become one of the most well-known insurance companies by offering millions of dollars to every individual who files an injury claim against it. The company has expert negotiators and works hard to ensure that it saves money whenever it can.
Trying to reach an acceptable agreement with Nationwide after an accident may be especially difficult if you have little experience with negotiation. However, many people who attempt to negotiate with Nationwide are in a similar situation.

How Much Is My Injury Claim Worth?
First, you want to determine the value of your claim. How much have you lost because of the accident? How much do you stand to lose in the future? How culpable were you for the accident? How culpable was the other party? These are all helpful questions when arriving at a figure for your injury claim.
Once you have determined the value of your claim, the next step is to send this figure to Nationwide. When proposing this offer to Nationwide, make sure to describe how you arrived at this figure. Even though Nationwide will most likely reject your initial offer, this does not mean that the negotiating process is over.
The First Offer
Nationwide will next present you with what is likely an extremely low initial settlement offer. Accident victims are sometimes likely to accept a low offer, because there are a lot of immediate financial needs that need to be taken care of after an accident. It is important to keep in mind that even though the adjuster you speak with may seem understanding, they are not working to get you back on your feet; they are working to help Nationwide protect its bottom line.
Consider all of your needs, both immediate and long-term. Car accidents may result in injuries that require years of medical treatment, and while it may be nice to have some money immediately, consider whether the possibility of more money in the future might be worth the wait.
If you do decide to reject the first offer from Nationwide, the next step is to come up with a counteroffer. Be prepared for a lengthy back and forth, but understand that it is ultimately your decision to accept or reject any particular offer.
