The Progressive Corporation is one of the largest providers of car insurance in the United States. The company also insures motorcycles, boats, RVs and commercial vehicles, and provides home insurance through select companies. The company was co-founded in 1937 by Jack Green and Joseph M. Lewis, and is headquartered in Mayfield Village, Ohio. Starting in 1956, the company found its niches insurance risky drivers.
It is estimated that Progressive Insurance company is the third-largest insurer of automobiles and vehicles in Indiana, trailing only State Farm Insurance Company and Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance Company. Latest statistics show that Progressive Insurance insures nearly 7% of all automobiles that are insured in the State of Indiana.
Today, it is known as a major insurance company through its humorous television commercials, starring "Flo" as a spokeswoman for its insurance lines.
I don't know if it is Progressive's history of insuring risky drivers or a learned education from the examples of State Farm Insurance Company or Allstate Insurance Company, but its adjusters are very difficult to resolve claims with. Progressive Insurance tends to devalue the true worth of many personal injury claims and cases, which forces personal injury attorneys to file lawsuits and threaten a jury trial to get fair value.
Although we have relationships with many adjusters of Progressive Insurance company in Indiana, we still prefer to attempt to get fair value for automobile insurance claims of personal injury, including pain and suffering, by filing lawsuits. Many times we can eventually recover 20x (twenty times) or more money in settlements after the filing of a lawsuit compared to offers made by Progressive Insurance in pre-litigation claims offers.
