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

Insurance policyholders that get injured as a result of a qualifying accident will more than likely always receive some form of compensation from their insurance provider. This settlement amount typically covers damages like medical expenses, a loss of wages, pain, and suffering, and any loss of potential future wages. However, insurance companies do not always provide a compensation amount that will cover all the damages the policyholder has had to experience.

Progressive Insurance: The Company
The Progressive Insurance Group is considered one of the largest car insurance providers in the country. The company provides insurance for vehicles like motorcycles, boats, RVs, and other commercial vehicles. The group of insurance companies also provides home insurance through some subsect companies. Founded in 1937 in Mayfield Ohio, as the first drive-in claims office, Progressive has expanded not just across the United but internationally as well. Progressive currently provides the following coverage plans to its policyholders:

  • Auto Insurance
  • Motorcycle Insurance
  • RV Insurance
  • Travel Trailer Insurance
  • Boating Insurance
  • Classic Car Insurance
  • Snowmobile Insurance

  • Mobile Home Insurance
  • Food Insurance
  • Commercial Auto Insurance
  • Pet Insurance
  • Health Insurance

These insurance plans are intended to cover the multitude of damages that can arise from accidents, ranging from medical expenses to emotional distress. Listed below are some examples of accidents Progressive Insurance can cover:

  • Auto Accidents
  • Bicycle Accidents
  • Boating Accidents
  • Dog Bites
  • Dog Attacks
  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Pedestrian Accidents
  • SUV rollover accidents

While it may appear as though Progressive offers a multitude of coverage plans, it is still a business, and it has a tendency to act as such, meaning there is no guarantee that they will offer full compensation to their policyholders right away. The best way for policyholders to get the fair compensation amount owed to them is to seek representation from a lawyer with experience in fighting Progressive Insurance Company. A skilled lawyer experienced in Progressive Insurance cases can show you how to settle a suitable injury claim with Progressive Insurance. Whether you are hoping to receive proper compensation for your truck accident claim, have a motorcycle accident injury case, or are trying to file a car accident lawsuit, our top attorneys at Normandie Law Firm can assist you in negotiating for a fairer insurance claim for compensation.

How To Negotiate An Injury Settlement Claim with Progressive Insurance Company
A large number of Progressive Insurance policyholders often ask our attorneys a broad range of questions regarding how to negotiate with an insurance adjuster. Some of these frequently asked questions include:

  • What is the best way to negotiate with an insurance claims adjuster?
  • What are some tips to negotiate with an insurance company?
  • Do Insurance Companies have my best interest in mind?
  • How Can I negotiate an Injury Settlement Claim with Progressive Insurance

For starters, as mentioned prior these companies are businesses and they operate as such. While they may appear to be concerned for the injuries you or your loved ones have endured they are still businesses at the end of the day and will make an added effort to give you as little room as possible in receiving a suitable claim for compensation. Below are some useful tips to help you in negotiating with a Progressive Insurance adjuster:

  • Communicate your settlement offer to your adjuster: Once you have understood the cost 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 counteroffer 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 what 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 Progressive; 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 Progressive 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.

With these helpful pieces of advice in mind and a skilled attorney with a lengthy history of dealing with Progressive Insurance, as well as other insurance providers, you can more than likely reach a proper compensation claim that will cover all of your damages. Unfortunately, insurance companies like Progressive don’t always act reasonably, and if you try and fight them on your own, you will more than likely end up with the short end of the stick, as they may give you an offer far below your actual needs. That is why it is in your best interest that you seek a skilled attorney who has experience in Progressive Insurance Company claims so that you can receive the compensation you deserve.
