New Jersey Nationwide Insurance Car Accident Claim Attorney

Filing a Claim With Nationwide Insurance After an Auto Accident

Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company was founded in the 1920s. Currently, Nationwide is one of the largest auto insurance providers in the country and is responsible for writing about three percent of all car insurance policies in the United States. 

Despite their slogan, Nationwide is still an insurance company and will always look out for its own bottom line. As a result, injured motorists filing a Nationwide car insurance claim see their claims denied or receive insufficient settlement offers.

At the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm, our experienced team of New Jersey car accident lawyers aggressively pursue maximum compensation on behalf of accident victims. For more than 30 years, we have helped clients get their lives back on track after a severe accident. 

Filing a Claim With Nationwide

If you have been hurt in an accident and are insured by Nationwide, the first step is to file a claim with the insurance company. Once you do, Nationwide will assign your claim to an adjuster. The claims adjuster is an employee of Nationwide and will always have the insurance company’s best interest in mind, despite what they tell you.

When an insurance adjuster calls you to discuss the accident and your injuries, it is essential that you answer all questions truthfully because they will verify what you tell them. However, rather than deal with the adjuster on your own, you can also have an experienced New Jersey car accident lawyer negotiate on your behalf. This ensures that you will not be taken advantage of by the insurance company. 

Remember, you only get one chance to file an insurance claim. If you accept a settlement offer that you later realize was far too low, it will be too late. For this reason, be sure to take the negotiation process seriously, and refuse to accept anything less than you deserve.

If you were seriously injured in a car accident and a Nationwide insurance adjuster presents you with a low settlement offer, reach out to an attorney at the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm for assistance. The sooner you contact us, the sooner we can get to work on your claim and the better your chances of receiving adequate compensation for your injuries. 

Potential Damages in a Car Accident Claim

When filing a Nationwide insurance claim, the first thing to remember is that insurance companies are more likely to offer you a larger settlement offer if an attorney represents you. Insurance companies exist to make a profit, and Nationwide is no different. Insurance adjusters will make the lowest settlement offer they think you will accept. Do not make the mistake of accepting the first offer they make; you can negotiate. Or, better yet, you can work with an attorney who will work for you in maximizing your compensation for your injuries. 

Most accident victims underestimate their damages. This is understandable, as chances are you have never been through the process before. However, to give you an idea, below are a few different categories of damages that you should be compensated for: 

• Medical expenses
• Future medical costs
• Lost wages and benefits
• Decreased earning potential 
• Pain and suffering
• Emotional distress
• Disability
• Disfigurement
• Property damage
• Loss of consortium

Knowing what you should be getting for your injuries will make it easier to negotiate to get what you deserve. However, if you run into problems dealing with Nationwide, give the New Jersey auto accident lawyers at the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm a call

The Importance of Working With an Experienced Personal Injury Lawyer

Do not be fooled; Nationwide is not on your side. A Nationwide insurance adjuster will try to convince you that your claim is worth less than it is. Remember, you do not need to accept their initial settlement offer; you can negotiate a fairer payout. However, Nationwide and other insurance companies know that they have most of the power. That is until they hear that you are working with an attorney. 

Once you bring an attorney onto your team, Nationwide will know you are serious. As soon as an insurance company hears a New Jersey car accident lawyer is involved in a case, they immediately change their tune.
