Best Negotiation Tactics for Nationwide Insurance – Negotiating Tips by Accident Attorneys

When a policyholder is injured as a result of a qualifying accident, they can expect to receive compensation from their insurance provider. This compensation is intended to cover damages like past, and future medical bills, a loss of wages, a loss of potential future wages, or any pain and suffering the policyholder may have had to endure. However, no guarantee said policyholder would receive an insurance claim that will cover all of the damages they have had to suffer. Fortunately, policyholders have every right to negotiate with an insurance claim adjuster to fight the lowball offer. However, dealing with an insurance adjuster can be challenging without the proper assistance. For this reason, it is in your best interest that you seek assistance from a lawyer who is an expert at negotiating with insurance companies. The insurance company of focus in this article is Nationwide. At Normandie Law Firm our attorneys have a wealth of experience in negotiating with insurance companies like Nationwide. If you have any questions after reading this article, please feel free to reach out to our law offices for a free consultation by one of our skilled legal associates.

Nationwide Insurance: The Company
Nationwide Insurance Company is made up of large U.S insurance and financial services companies. Based out of Columbus Ohio, the insurance group was founded in 1925 by Murray D. Lincoln. Today, the company has gone on to rank as 69th in the most recent Fortunate 500 report. Nationwide has grown to become one of the largest companies in the nation, employing somewhere around 31,000 individuals and having locations scattered throughout the United States. The company is known more commonly for its famous company jingle, “Nationwide is on your side.” The Insurance Group provides a large number of insurance coverage plans for their policyholders that cover some of the following accidents:

  • Auto Accidents
  • Bicycle Accidents
  • Boating Accidents
  • Dog Bites
  • Dog Attacks
  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Pedestrian Accidents
  • SUV rollover accidents
  • Slip and Fall Accidents
  • Truck Accidents
  • Wrongful Death Accidents

While it may appear as though Nationwide provides policyholders with impressive coverage, there is no guarantee that a policyholder will receive a full settlement amount for their damages after suffering from a qualifying accident. Insurance companies like Nationwide are businesses, and they will tend to operate as such. Policyholders that receive an unfair settlement offer from their insurance provider can seek representation from a lawyer with experience in fighting the Nationwide Insurance Company. An experienced lawyer can help you in settling a suitable injury claim for compensation with your insurance provider. Whether you are attempting to receive a full settlement amount for your truck accident claim, have a motorcycle accident injury case you need to bring to an insurance adjuster, or are trying to file a car accident lawsuit against a at-fault party, our attorneys at Normandie Law Firm can guide you through the arduous process of fighting your insurance provider for a farer claim for compensation.

How To Negotiate an Injury Settlement Claim With Nationwide Insurance Company
Nationwide policyholders who are trying to receive an adequate compensation from their insurance coverage plan, typically ask our attorneys a broad range of questions regarding how best to negotiate with their insurance adjuster. Some of these frequently asked questions are bulleted below:

  • What are the best negotiation tactics against Nationwide Insurance?
  • What are the best negotiation tactics to use against Nationwide Insurance for a car accident?
  • Do Insurance Companies like Nationwide have my best interest in mind?
  • How do I settle an accident injury claim with Nationwide
  • How do I negotiate with an insurance claims adjuster

In a perfect world, policyholders could receive a fair settlement claim from their insurance provider. Unfortunately, as previously stated, insurance companies are businesses, and they will operate as such. They may declare that they have your best interest in mind, but at the end of the day, they will still try to award policyholders with as little compensation as possible. For this reason, it is highly recommended that you learn how to negotiate an injury settlement with Nationwide Insurance properly. Listed below are some of the tips to help you in negotiating with a Nationwide Insurance claims adjuster:

  • Communicate your settlement offer to your adjuster: Once you have understood the size and scope of your losses, you should then use this information to arrive at a settlement amount that will adequately compensate you for your damages. This includes everything involved in your injuries, such as medical bills, ongoing treatment costs, pain and suffering, and a loss of wages. For instance, if you were involved in a car accident, when making your car accident settlement claim it is best to go beyond whether your vehicle was a total loss. Make an added effort to describe and calculate all the damages that were caused by accident.
  • Expect the “back and forth,”: In almost all circumstances, your claim adjuster will likely reject your settlement offer at first. They will try and make a counter offer that is far beneath your initial request for compensation. This tactic is common amongst insurance adjusters and is used to determine how much ‘fight’ you have in you, and whether the claim can be settled quickly. It is highly recommended that you ask your adjuster to justify the amount they are offering.
  • Know matters to your insurance adjuster: Even if your damages are quite extensive, insurance adjusters rarely care about your situation. They are most likely concerned about the financial status of Nationwide; essentially how much money they are going to have to shell out to keep you satisfied. For this reason, it is, important to make your insurance adjuster aware of useful facts that would amount to Nationwide paying a lot more money if they do not agree to your settlement amount. These facts can include things that would be useful in a trial setting, and also demonstrate that you are not going to settle your claim for much less than its worth

While these tips may play a crucial role in receiving the claim you deserve for your damages, the help of an attorney with experience in negotiating with Nationwide Insurance is incredibly important to reaching a positive outcome for your case. As stated multiple times prior, insurance companies don’t always have your best interest in mind and will do their best to offer you as little a claim as possible. While you can go it alone, there is no guarantee that an insurance company, like Nationwide, will give you the compensation you deserve and need for your damages.
