Maximizing Your Claim with Farmers
Farmers Insurance Group is one of the leading car insurance providers in the United States. Farmers has over 85 years of experience and offers a variety of coverage options, including collision, liability, comprehensive, and uninsured motorist coverage. The company prides itself on offering personalized attention to clients and savings. However, far too many clients who find themselves needing to file claims do not have a positive experience. They report that Farmers, like many other insurance companies, attempt to shortchange policyholders by denying or minimizing claim.
At Stein & Shulman, LLC, our Chicago automobile accident attorneys have assisted numerous accident victims in filing claims and seeking compensation from Farmers Insurance. We understand the challenges associated with obtaining full coverage from Farmers, but with our skilled assistance, you can bring the strongest possible claim. Do not allow yourself to experience the heartache of unpaid medical expenses and uncompensated time off work. Contact our office to start your claim right.
About Farmers Auto Insurance
Farmers Insurance Group started in 1928 in a small, one-room office in Los Angeles. Its focus was on providing farmers with fair coverage for their automobiles. Farmers became the first insurance company to provide monthly payment plans in the 1960’s. The company continued to expand and today encompasses numerous subsidiaries, including the 21st Century Insurance Group and the Bristol West Insurance Group.
What to Do After an Accident
Being involved in a car accident is a frightening experience. It can be hard to know what to do, but your actions in the aftermath of the crash can significantly impact your claim later on. You should observe the following steps to ensure your rights are protected to the fullest:
- Safety first: Make sure everyone is okay. Call 911 if anyone is seriously injured and avoid moving accident victims as you could injure them further.
- Gather information: Obtain the contact information of the other driver(s) and witnesses to the crash. Take photographs, if possible, of the damage to your vehicle, skid marks, your injuries, and the overall scene. Be sure you additionally ask for the insurance information of the involved driver(s).
- Avoid discussions of fault: Do not discuss fault with others involved in the crash, the police, or the insurance company. Fault is a legal question for others to determine and you should simply state the facts of the crash.
