Progressive Corporation is a massive American car insurance company that brought in $30 billion of revenue in 2018. Founded in 1937, with headquarters in Ohio, Progressive Corporation has grown in financial holdings to be one of the top 10 American insurance companies—although they also now have a branch in Australia.
Progressive Corporation offers auto insurance for passenger vehicles – cars, boats, recreation – as well as commercial vehicles, including business cars and truck. They also offer other-indemnity liability insurance for the directors of banks and officers liability insurance. All in all, Progressive currently handles about 13 million active insurance policies.Progressive’s Reputation for Fighting Claims
Like most big auto insurance companies, Progressive seeks to minimize payouts on claims against their insured drivers. While Progressive is known for under valuing claims, they are most well-known, in this light, for the case of Kaitlynn Fisher—a 24 year old woman who was killed in an auto accident after a Progressive policy holder reportedly ran a red light. Progressive was criticized for fighting the case in court against Kaitlynn Fischer’s surviving loved ones.
This sort of thing just makes you feel bad about an insurance company. If they don’t want to pay for a death caused by one of their policy holders, they will likely be reluctant to pay for lesser injuries.You Need The Jackman Law Firm to Obtain Full Compensation for Your Claim

Enlisting a lawyer at Chris Jackman Law Firm to deal with the claim on your behalf is the best way for you to receive the compensation you deserve.

Your personal injury car accident lawyer will assist in gathering evidence and facts that empower your case. Obtaining the police report that was written at the scene of the accident provides a frontline factual account of what happened at the time. Medical records can help to prove injuries caused by the crash.
Accounts of the medical costs, hospitalization expenses, and lost wages because you couldn’t work due to injuries from the accident will boost the amount of your compensation. All these damages represent losses you suffered that were due to no fault of your own.
Therefore, they should be repaid to you. If your case goes to trial, or sometimes beforehand, we will also help you gather medical and legal experts who can legitimize the extent of your injuries and verify the other party’s fault in the accident.
A picture is worth a thousand words—in that spirit we like to build up as much photographic evidence as possible regarding the accident and your injuries. Add to this any eyewitness accounts of the accident and your case begins to become unbeatable. We may also ask to inspect the other driver’s car or get a thorough report from the shop that repaired it.
All these factors help a competent Seattle personal injury lawyer to build a rock solid case and earn you a major payday—which is the light at the end of the dark tunnel incurred by an unwanted auto accident.You Deserve Full Compensation for Your Damages
