Progressive Commercial is one of the largest liability insurance companies in California. It purports to specialize in heavy truck claims. If you’ve been in an accident that was caused by a big driver insured by Progressive Commercial Insurance, it’s highly likely that your police accident report will indicate that fact. As victims of truck crashes frequently suffer serious personal injuries, you’ll need appropriate insurance information for purposes of bringing a claim against the driver who caused your crash and your injuries and damages. There are a few ways of going about doing this, so here’s what you need to know.
If you were seriously injured in a big rig accident and the driver had Progressive Commercial Insurance, contact us first for a free consultation and case evaluation.
Making Your Big Rig Accident Injury Claim Against Progressive Commercial Insurance
If you have already spoken to an attorney and/or are making your own claim, here are the steps.
Unlike some other insurance companies, Progressive Commercial doesn’t take claim notices from accident victims online. That shouldn’t be of concern though. You can still make your claim by first class mail, but it should probably be done by certified mail, return receipt requested. That way, you’ll have proof that your claim notice was sent and received. You’ll want to attach a copy of the police report to your claim notice. Here’s the address for the insurance company:
Progressive United Insurance Company Claims Department
The Progressive Corporation
6300 Wilson Mills Road
Mayfield, OH 44143
The Claim Notice After a California Truck Accident
Your claim notice need only be short and to the point. Provide your name, address and phone number, the name of the truck driver who you’re making your claim against, and the date of the accident and where it occurred. Attach a copy of the police accident report to it. Don’t say anything about how the big rig crash occurred or the injuries that you suffered. For your own protection, don’t say anything further in your notice.
Progressive Commercial will open a claim file, and you’ll likely receive a brief letter from a claims adjuster introducing himself or herself along with the claim number and the adjuster’s phone number. You’ll probably receive one or more phone calls from the adjuster. That’s likely when you’ll start creating problems with your claim.
Consult With Us Before Making Your Truck Accident Claim
It’s the adjuster’s job to save Progressive Commercial as much money as possible on your claim.
