Nationwide Auto Insurance Claims
Nationwide Insurance Company provides auto insurance policies for people throughout Florida. Along with the other large insurance companies, like GEICO and State Farm, Nationwide is one of the biggest insurance providers in the state. Therefore, when someone is involved in a car accident, he or she may need to file a Nationwide auto insurance claim to receive compensation related to property loss, as well as any injuries.

From initial filing to negotiations and settlements, as well as litigation, Robert Dixon and his staff are dedicated to making sure that claimants are properly compensated for their losses so that they can focus on the healing process.

If you have been involved in a car accident, one of the first calls that you should make is to your insurance company and possibly the insurer of the other driver. Nationwide policyholders can call the company’s toll-free number at 1-800-421-3535. The claims services department is available at any time or day for incoming claims, and it can be reached on the phone or online, as well as through the Nationwide mobile app. In this initial contact, Nationwide will collect information regarding your name, address, and phone number, as well as the names and addresses of anyone hurt in the accident, along with witnesses. Once this information is relayed, a Nationwide claims adjuster will review the notes and contact you regarding any further information that the company needs.
In dealing with insurance companies like Nationwide, it is important not to give a recorded statement right away, especially a statement that implies any admission of fault for an accident, since not everything will be known in the immediate aftermath of a collision. A recorded statement may negatively affect your claim. Additionally, an adjuster might make a quick settlement offer that does not reflect a victim’s actual costs, which are also uncertain because further medical treatment could be necessary as injuries develop. Insurance company representatives are just that, representing the insurance company and its interests, which come down to a bottom line. A Nationwide adjuster will try to minimize costs as much as possible when submitting an initial offer to a claimant in a Nationwide auto insurance claim.
Insurance companies must engage in fair and reasonable practices regarding customer interactions. Nationwide has a good reputation overall in customer service, and it has not been listed among the top 10 worst insurance companies by the American Association of Justice. However, this does not mean that Nationwide adjusters will automatically approve the full amount that a car accident victim is due under a policy. When there are serious injuries involved, it is important to consult a knowledgeable attorney who can make sure that your damages are properly assessed and that the insurance coverage provided is fair and adequate.Contact a Miami Attorney for Assistance with an Auto Insurance Claim
