Progressive Insurance is one of the largest insurance companies in the nation, covering millions of automobile owners and commercial vehicle drivers.
While Progressive may seem like an easy company to work with based on their various marketing campaigns, Progressive is an insurance company seeking to make a profit. And just like any other insurance company, the Progressive insurance scheme can be difficult to navigate. This is especially apparent when injured in a trucking accident.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a semi-truck accident, call Zinda Law Group at (800) 863-5312 for a 100% free case evaluation with our trucking accident lawyers.
How to File a Claim
After being involved in a trucking accident with a commercial vehicle driver or a trucking company that is insured by Progressive, your first step to seeking compensation is to file a claim.
When you file your claim, Progressive will assign you an insurance adjuster. This insurance adjuster will review your claim and begin Progressive’s investigation into the details of the accident and possible outcomes of the case. The insurance adjuster will look at your case as it would any other, not accounting for all of the variables that make your case different. This is why it’s important to make them aware of your side of the story and the lengths you are willing to go to be fairly compensated for your injuries.
Consider Contacting a Truck Accident Attorney
Collisions that involve commercial vehicles are usually quite complex. This is in part because there are usually several parties that may be at fault for the accident. Therefore, it may be extremely beneficial to consider contacting a semi-truck accident attorney.
Your injury lawyer should be experienced in dealing with insurance companies such as Progressive, specifically on trucking accident claims, so that their experience will be the perfect guide for you during this confusing process.
You may not be able to determine when you are being lowballed by Progressive, but your attorney should be able to tell what is fair and what is unfair. Your attorney should be able to fight for you against the insurance company on a more level playing field to allow for a more accurate value of your claim.
How to Strengthen Your Claim
When it comes to filing your claim, there is one very important rule: keep a record of everything. The value of your claim is strengthened through providing strong evidence that you deserve more. This type of evidence includes:
- Medical expenses, both past and future
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning capacity
- Police reports
- Crash reports
- Photographs of your vehicle, your injuries, and the scene of the accident, if possible
- Witness statements
- Repair costs
