About Nationwide

From the beginning, Nationwide has been dedicated to providing automobile insurance to the general public. Although it began operating in 1926, the company was not officially recognized as Nationwide until 1955, a name that suited the company’s aspirations to provide insurance across the United States. Regarded as one of the top ten auto insurance companies in the country, Nationwide's services include everything from pet insurance policies to retirement plans.

On Forbes’ list of Best Car Insurance Companies in the United States, Nationwide received a rating on par with GEICO. Their low premiums and history of infrequent customer complaints earned them a rank of 4.0. However, the review noted that customers were less satisfied with the result of their claims, a sign that Nationwide’s settlement offers were lower than customers expected them to be.

In some instances, an insurance company might offer a settlement that an individual considers to be insufficient or unfair. You should never accept the first settlement offer of an insurance company, particularly if you believe their offer is less than your claim is worth. It is a notorious and common practice for insurance companies to offer low settlements in an attempt to save money by paying their clients less. You always have the option of contesting their offer. However, doing so will require providing evidence to support your dispute. In such situations, the expert help of a personal injury attorney can be invaluable in fighting for your right to an adequate settlement. Our team at the Dietrich Law Firm P.C. is experienced in settling insurance claim disputes and will fight to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.



Is it Worthwhile to File a No-Fault Claim?

One question that arises in the event of a car accident is whether or not it is worth the effort to file a No-Fault insurance claim. In this situation, the two things to consider are your premiums and your deductible.

A premium is an amount paid to an insurance company in exchange for coverage under their insurance policy. When you are involved in a motor vehicle accident, your premium could increase; this is because you now have a record of being in an accident and are considered to be a ‘high-risk’ driver. Simply put, insurance companies expect high-risk drivers to be involved in more accidents, which in turn cost them more money. Premiums increase to cover the additional cost of this risk.

Your deductible is the amount you are required to pay in the event of an accident. A $500 deductible, for example, means that you are obligated to pay up to $500 out of pocket to cover your damages before your insurance company kicks in a dime. When you report your accident to your insurance company, you will be required to submit photos, accident reports, disability notes, and medical records to help them evaluate the amount of compensation that you are entitled to. Generally, if the amount is less than your deductible, it may not be worthwhile to file a claim because the insurance company will not cover any of the costs. If the cost is greater than your deductible, it is advantageous to file a claim.

How Can the Dietrich Law Firm P.C. Help You? Shaking Hands at Office Meeting

When you file a No-Fault insurance claim, the insurance company will pass it along to an insurance adjuster. The insurance adjuster will then investigate the claim to ensure that it is valid and that you have reason to receive compensation. Many individuals choose to submit No-Fault insurance claims without the assistance of legal professionals and may be able to obtain reasonable settlements. However, there is always the possibility that the claim will be denied on the basis of incorrect or inconclusive information. In order to avoid the hassle of disputing a denied claim, you can request the services of a personal injury attorney to help you file your No-Fault insurance claim.

Despite the fact that insurance companies are paid to provide compensation in the event of an accident, they are not on your side. Their goal is to make money, and they will attempt to lowball their customers to hold on to as much of that capital as possible. At the Dietrich Law Firm P.C., our top priority is our clients. Our policy is to never charge our clients a dime until compensation for our clients has been secured. We are dedicated to reaching successful outcomes for our clients, and unlike insurance companies, it is in our best interest to help you attain the highest possible compensation.

A personal injury attorney can also fight on your behalf to obtain compensation above and beyond your No-Fault benefits. No-Fault claims in New York State cap-out at $50,000.00, which means that if you are severely injured in a motor vehicle accident, a No-Fault claim will likely not be sufficient to compensate you for your damages. Further, No-Fault claims do not cover damages like pain and suffering. If you or a loved one have been injured in a motor vehicle accident due to someone else’s negligence, you should file a personal injury lawsuit on top of your No-Fault insurance claim in order to ensure that you are adequately compensated for your injuries.
