Do I Need to File a Progressive Claim After a Car Accident in Virginia?

If you were involved in a car accident in Virginia and either you or the other driver is a Progressive policyholder, you should file a claim with Progressive. 

Be Cautious of Progressive Insurance

Be aware that insurance companies will often attempt to minimize the amount of compensation they are willing to pay. They may also deny your claim altogether or delay the process of obtaining a settlement. Insurance companies do not want to lose money, so they often attempt to pay out as little as possible.

This is why it is so important to have an experienced car accident lawyer on your side who can advise you on how to handle your auto insurance claim best and fight for the compensation you rightfully deserve.

Progressive’s Settlement Negotiation Strategies

Progressive is known for using a variety of tricky settlement negotiation strategies. After you submit a progressive insurance claim, they may attempt to make quick and lowball offers or deny certain portions of your claim without an adequate explanation. They may also use delaying tactics, such as asking you to provide paperwork that is not necessary or refusing to negotiate in good faith. Our attorneys can help protect your rights during the negotiations and ensure you receive a fair settlement.

How To Maximize Your Virginia Car Accident Claim

While handling your accident claim independently may be tempting, hiring a lawyer can significantly increase your chances of receiving total compensation for your losses.

Here are some strategies we recommend to help you obtain the best possible outcome for your case:

Hire a Car Accident Lawyer

An experienced lawyer can investigate the accident thoroughly, identify liable parties and insurance coverage sources, calculate damages, file your car insurance claim, and negotiate with insurers on your behalf.

Document Everything

Keep track of all medical bills, lost wages, repair costs, and other expenses related to the accident. Gather photos of the scene of the accident, if available. This will help strengthen your case. If you work with our car accident attorneys, we take care of this for you.

Never Accept the First Settlement Offer

Dealing with the aftermath of an accident can be financially stressful. Progressive adjusters may try to take advantage of this by pressuring you to accept a low settlement offer quickly before you can fully assess the extent of your losses. While it may be tempting to accept a quick offer, it’s important to remember that this could result in a settlement that doesn’t cover all of your bills and losses. Take time to fully evaluate your situation and consult a lawyer before accepting any offers. It is essential to seek the help of an experienced personal injury attorney who can help you navigate the personal injury claims process and fight for the compensation you truly deserve. Don’t let Progressive or any other insurance company take advantage of your financial situation. You deserve fair and just compensation for your losses.

Keep Communication With Insurers to a Minimum

Do not sign any documents or accept any settlement offers until you have consulted an attorney to ensure they are fair and reasonable. When filing a claim with Progressive, you may be asked to provide a recorded statement about your accident to expedite the process. While this is a common practice among insurance companies, be aware that you are not legally obligated to do so. Our law firm has seen instances where recorded statements can be used against the injured victim in settlement negotiations. We recommend seeking legal guidance before providing a statement. We can help protect your interests by advising you on the best course of action and working to ensure that your claim is fairly evaluated.

File A Lawsuit

Suppose the insurance company refuses to provide you with a fair settlement. In that case, your lawyer can file a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf. A lawsuit may be necessary if the opposing party is unwilling to negotiate in good faith or if the damages exceed their policy limits. Filing an official lawsuit with your lawyers will increase the pressure on them and could lead to a much higher settlement amount.

What If You Are in an Accident With an Uninsured Driver?

Suppose you are in an accident with a driver without insurance coverage. In that case, you may be entitled to compensation from your own insurance carrier. If Progressive is your insurer, they should provide you with uninsured motorist coverage that can help protect you when this happens. This coverage will cover medical expenses, lost wages, and other losses related to the accident with the uninsured driver.
