Geico Insurance

Filing an auto accident compensation claim against a large corporation like Geico may be a bit intimidating. We understand how you feel and can provide you with the expert professional representation you need to build and file a successful case. With years of legal experience in litigating personal injury cases, we’ve helped our clients to obtain compensation for damages they’ve suffered in a variety of Washington State car accidents.

Geico History & Business Info

Geico is famous for their use of the bright green animated gecko lizard in their commercials and advertisements. However, Geico’s name is not just a play on the word “gecko,” it is an acronym for Government Employees Insurance Company. Headquartered in Chevy Chase, Maryland, Geico is second only to State Farm as the largest American car insurance company, providing coverage for the entire United States. Founded in 1936 to provide auto insurance to federal government employees and their families, by 1974 the Company had expanded their auto insurance coverage to the general public.

Following a crisis situation (related to the recession) in 1975 of $126.5 million in losses, Geico has grown enormously over the past decades, now celebrating annual revenues of over $25 billion. In 1996, Geico became a wholly owned subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway, whose chairman is Warren Buffet. As of 2017, they provided auto insurance for 15 million policy holders, with coverage for over 24 million motor vehicles. In addition to its lovable green lizard mascot, Geico is also popular for its amusing and off-kilter commercials.

Geico’s claims adjusters are usually very quick to respond to claims and open an investigation into your case. However, their expediency may be pursued to resolve your claim before you have full knowledge of the extent of your injuries or an appreciation for what compensation you deserve. Therefore, we fully recommend consulting with a professional attorney at Chris Jackman Law Firm before divulging any personal information beyond the bare facts of the case.

Though the Geico claims adjuster may be very friendly, they are angling to ascertain any and all information about you to minimize your payout or avert your claim altogether. Because your accident and claim likely involves a medical situation, the claims adjuster may request access to your medical records. Never grant them this permission without consulting your attorney. Geico will use your medical history information in whatever way they can to defend against your claim.

We are in no way suggesting that you break the law. We are urging you to obtain legal representation that can help you navigate through the legal maze so that you are not taken advantage of. Remember, Geico is like most any other insurance company: their number one goal is to defend against your claim so they can minimize or avoid payout altogether. This is how they remain profitable as a business.

Avoiding a Minimized Payout on Your Case

The main difficulty with filing a claim against Geico is the company is so immense and financially powerful that they have the resources to build a very strong defense. It takes a law team that is exceptionally crafty and deeply knowledgeable of personal injury car accident litigation, as well as highly experienced with a significant track record of success.

After reporting the accident, your number one priority in pursuing a personal injury case against Geico is to obtain legal representation that can embolden your ability to make your claim. An experienced personal injury lawyer at the Jackman Law Firm can guide you through the entire process, including speaking to the Geico claims adjuster on your behalf.

Remember, we don’t get paid unless you do, so we fight tooth and nail for the compensation you deserve. Call today for a free consultation.

Mr. Jackman has far exceeded my expectations in handling my case. I had hired another lawyer shortly after my accident, only to be told 2 short months before the statute of limitations ran out that he could not represent my case. I reached out to Mr. Jackman and within 4 months my case was settled and closed. Chris Jackman is a qualified, competent, up and coming Seattle Lawyer. He will handle your case in a prompt and professional manor. I can’t say enough about how he changed my perception of lawyers in general. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Jackman to my family and friends. Jim D.

Hired Chris for a personal injury case. I knew the Insurance companies would try to do what they do best – delay payment, save money, and not be fair! (Sorry, not a fan!) And they did just that. Fortunately I hired a caring, compassionate, awesome, kind, focused, brilliant, up and coming Rockstar of an attorney that believed in me and my case. Anytime something came up, I would call him and he would say "I’ll take care of it" and I knew it would be handled. You can count on Chris to go the extra steps to help you, and I really believe in him. Wouldn’t hesitate to hire or recommend. Thank you Chris for being a fair and honest man and Attorney! Anonymous
