Progressive Insurance Money After Car Accident – Should I Take It?


After a car accident, there are several issues you must deal with. However, when the other driver is insured by Progressive Insurance, you have an extra issue.You have to be careful when you talk to a Progressive insurance adjuster.Progressive Insurance is tricky, and they insure many cars in Minnesota.

Our lawyers regularly get calls from people who were offered some ‘spending money for incidentals’ from Progressive.When they take the money, they sign a Release. Later, they find out that by taking the money they gave up all rights to additional compensation for their injuries. Once you sign the release and take the money, even if it’s only a few hundred dollars, you rarely can undo the agreement.

It is OK to have Progressive pay to fix or replace your vehicle, because that does not release your potential injury claim. (Still, don’t sign anything from Progressive without talking to a lawyer). However, you should not take any other money from Progressive after a car accident. Our injury lawyers have had many calls over the years from people who regretted taking that initial offer from Progressive. They took a few hundred dollars soon after the car accident in Minnesota. Unfortunately, they later realized they were more injured than they initially thought. Don’t take any money unless you are entirely sure you were not injured.
