Penn National Insurance: Insurance Claims & Settlements


Penn National Insurance provides insurance for businesses, personal automobile, and homeowners. It was founded in 1919 with the intent of providing workers' compensation insurance, but quickly expanded to other types of insurance. In 2009 Penn National ranked as the 48th private automobile insurance company with a market share of 0.27% and $9,882,111 in premiums (see the Maryland Report here). While not as ubiquitous as Allstate, State Farm or GEICO, we run into Penn National on a fairly regular basis.

Penn National's Operating Territory

Penn National sells insurance in nine states: Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Alabama.

Settlement of Penn National Accident Claims

Penn National's adjusters are about average--they work to settle cases the majority of the time, but in some cases they stick with unreasonable numbers. This can necessitate lawsuits to obtain the fair value of our clients' claims. If a settlement is not possible or reasonable, the lawsuits are often defended by the Law Offices of Frank F. Daily, P.A. In January of this year (2013), our firm had a nice win against Penn National on behalf of a nice client in Frederick County. In that case, Penn National was the underinsured motorist carrier, and they argued that they should not be identified to the jury because of fears that the jury would hold it against them for being a big insurance company. You can see our response to their motion here. Penn National does have a few high-profile cases that went up to the Maryland appellate courts. (You can get more information about the Maurer v. Pennsylvania National case here.)

Client Reviews

  • They quite literally worked as hard as if not harder than the doctors to save our lives.
  • Ron helped me find a clear path that ended with my foot healing and a settlement that was much more than I hope for.
  • Hopefully I won't need it again but if I do, I have definitely found my lawyer for life and I would definitely recommend this office to anyone!
  • The last case I referred to them settled for $1.2 million.
  • I am so grateful that I was lucky to pick Miller & Zois.
  • The entire team from the intake Samantha to the lawyer himself (Ron Miller) has been really approachable.
  • The case settled and I got a lot more money than I expected. Ron even fought to reduce how much I owed in medical bills so I could get an even larger settlement.
  • Miller and Zois is the best firm in the state of Maryland, and without their support, understanding, and just being there when I needed encouragement, I truly do not know how I would have succeeded without them.
