That sucks Mark, but I agree nothing about your suit is frivolous - hell that's about the best reason for lawsuits to exist! Hope it works out for you, seems like you're on the clear side of the law on this one.

I had asked them for $5,000; which was essentially the value of the equipment I owned which was destroyed in the crash, and my deductible and "extra damage payment" that my bank required for the car to be paid off. Certainly not unreasonable, and honestly probably more than fair for them; and still they refused to pay.

I would have to suggest to anyone here to not use Nationwide for insurance; and I plan on offering that little nugget to anyone I contact in either of my jobs, too.
I had Nationwide for almost 30 years from a guy that my dad went to school with. After he sold the business, which is another story, I found out how shitty they actually were, and how much he had actually been greasing the skid for our family. Everyone in the family has left them now, except for one vehicle that no one else will insure on account of the manufacturer being out of business.

I hope you get all that you should have gotten from them at minimum.

Get a collar and start yelling, " My neck, my neck! "
Seriously, last time someone ran into me, it was a f**king nightmare to get it settled.

Nationwide ins.

Mark, Good luck with the law suit. I am rooting for you. I have never liked Nationwide insurance ever since I had health insurance with them and they refused a claim and could not tell me why it was refused. Even though I am a farm owner I refuse to join the Ohio Farm Bureau because the Farm Bureau endorses Nationwide insurance. Carl

ALWAYS stay injured until you are satisfied with a settlement!

Sounds like a good idea. Six on your side might get you some attention. Couldn't hurt and it's free. Given the details you wrote in October I can't see why they wouldn't put it on the air. A man dedicates his life to the public by serving both on a police force and EMT squads, escapes severe injury/death by inches, saves womans life and her insurance co won't pay a meer $5,000 to cover your losses? I'd roll the dice and call them, worst they could say is no. Might get your check a lot faster and you don't have to deal with lawyers and courts.
