This site contains details of my experience with a claim with Nationwide
Insurance from a car accident on 7 December 2003 that still has not been
settled after after two years. My intentions is to inform people who may
need to deal with Nationwide Insurance (or other companies) with helpful
info, hints, direction and let them now what they are in for. While the
focus is on insurance companies and Nationwide in particular I also offer
info with government agencies, attorneys & others. I have obtained
training materials used for Nationwide adjusters & others where the
focus is on reducing to as little as possible what is paid claimants. My
best advice is to never use Nationwide for Insurance at all. Even if you
find their rates reasonable if you need to make a claim you will find yourself
without the protection that is the reason for carrying insurance to begin
with. To give you a big example of this look at the suit Nationwide made
against there own customers
in the gulf Coast. Then what did you save? They usually are not the
cheapest anyway if you check around. Also I have included comments from
others I have communicated with who have had similar experiences with Nationwide.
These are people with verified papers or credentials. Please do not send
your experiences if you are not willing to disclose details of your case
as I will not use anything not verified. We do not fully disclose names
(except Governor Jeb Bush & public officials) so nothing will be a
personal attack and no one else will be attacked. The goal is to inform
what the mass media will not about big insurance companies. While some
legal information is provided I make know claims of being an attorney or
an expert but merely provide the information. This site is ever-changing
as I learn more and hear from others in similar positions. Some information
here will surprise you and is important to know before beginning a claim
with any insurance company. Important
Notes & info will be marked with a star.
This web site has no connection with the Nationwide Insurance Companies except as a claimant.
I also wish to thank a number of racers around the country who have this website on their cars. It is the family of the racing community and their support in this matter that is encouraging. A special Thank you goes to Joe Russell who hand painted all the race cars in his division with this website address. Part of this website is to inform what racers often go through with insurance claims and how those companies and the government essentially steal from the citizens of this country.
