This is the ultimate guide to personal injury claims and settlements with Travelers Insurance Company.
You’ll hear about car and truck accidents, and slip and fall settlements with Travelers.
You are also going to hear about my many settlements with Travelers. That includes car accident settlements, slip and fall payouts and other types of cases.
If Travelers Insurance insures someone who causes your accident, the other driver likely has bodily injury (“BI”) liability insurance. This is great because BI insurance this is the most common source of payment for pain and suffering in a car accident case.
Since most cars in Florida don’t have to have BI insurance, many other insurance companies insure cars without BI insurance.
Drivers who are insured with Travelers likely have decent BI limits. All things equal, I think that drivers insured with Travelers are more likely to have more than $10,000 in BI liability insurance.
Travelers Pays Better Than the Big 4 Car Insurers
Travelers is by no means the best paying insurer that sells Florida car or truck insurance in Florida. However, Travelers has a reputation for paying more fairly than many others.
From my experience, Travelers’ car accident insurance adjusters are more educated than claims adjusters for small auto insurance companies. This means that you’re less likely to have to repeat yourself when speaking with them.
I’ve found Travelers auto adjusters to be more customer service friendly than many other small insurance companies.
If you have a personal injury case that is worth more than the BI liability insurance or uninsured motorist (“UM”) insurance limits, Travelers will respond quickly to you.
If your case is worth less than the liability insurance limits, don’t be surprised if Travelers delays making a fair offer to settle.
How Do You Know If You Have Big Auto Accident Case Against Travelers?
Ask the Travelers claim handler if he or she is part of the Auto Liability Severity Unit. This is the Travelers division that handles the high value claims.
In terms of the value of your injury case, it’s a good sign for you if your claim is being handled by this division.
That being said, if there is limited BI liability insurance you may be struck accepting the BI limits even if you have a horrible injury or death case.

$210K Travelers Insurance Settlement (Fall in Restaurant)
Mike (not real name) was eating at a restaurant in North Miami, Florida. When he tried to exit the booth, it tipped up in the air. This sent him to the ground.
He landed on his wrist, which he broke. He got a free consultation with me. As soon as he hired me, I made a claim with Travelers Insurance. They insured the restaurant.
He had a wrist surgery. The restaurant closed down. However, the Travelers adjuster let me inspect the restaurant. I took a video showing that the booth would tip in the air.
Travelers Insurance would not offer more than $20,000. So I sued the restaurant. Right after I sued, Travelers increased its offer to $40,000. Mike then had a second wrist surgery.
I took depositions in the case. We settled for $210,000. By the time of settlement, his wrist was doing better. As with most serious injury cases, most of the settlement was for pain and suffering.

Regina lived Texas. On August 2, 2013, a guest was staying at the Marriott Courtyard hotel in Downtown Pensacola, Florida. She turned on the water in the bathtub in her hotel bathroom. She stepped into the tub, and slipped and fell.
The guest fractured her upper arm bone (humerus), and had surgery to fix it.
On August 14, 2013, Regina’s husband filled out a form on my website to Get a Free Consultation with me. He saw that we’ve settled many hotel accident cases. He also saw that we had an average 5 star review on Google Maps.
I immediately called Regina’s husband. Next, I spoke with Regina. She hired me as her slip and fall lawyer.
We claimed that the bathtub flooring was unreasonably slippery. Our bathtub expert said the bathtub flooring wasn’t slip resistant. He said the flooring was dangerous.
The surgery left her with a scar on the back of her upper arm. The photo below shows her scar.
