Safeway Insurance Company is owned by Safeway Insurance Group, which is headquartered in Illinois. It mainly provides automobile insurance to its customers and insureds.
Safeway typically writes minimum insurance policies. Under Alabama law, the required minimum amount of automobile liability insurance coverage is $25,000.00 per claimant. In other words, if you are injured by someone operating an automobile with Safeway insurance, you will probably only be able to recover up to $25,000.00. However, instead of making the process for receiving compensation an amicable one, Safeway has a reputation for being difficult with claimants.
Dealing With Safeway Can Be Challenging
Safeway has awful reviews online. Not only have staff members reportedly been rude to claimants, they are known to delay the claims process either for their own insureds or those who have been involved in an accident with their insureds. Check out the reviews on the Better Business Bureau Website. Wow! Look at all the complaints!

What Do I Need To Provide Safeway Insurance To File a Claim?
Like most insurance companies, Safeway’s goal is to pay out as little as possible on your claim. In fact, it will often fall on the accident victim to prove that he or she is fully entitled to collect on their insurance policy.
Thus, it is imperative to gather as much information as possible to help bolster your auto accident claim.
Examples of information you may want to provide to your attorney or Safeway to support a claim include:
- A FORMAL POLICE REPORT
- MEDICAL BILLS
- PHOTOGRAPHS OR VIDEOS OF THE ACCIDENT SCENE
- CONTACT INFORMATION FOR OTHER PARTIES INVOLVED IN THE ACCIDENT
- WITNESS STATEMENTS
- WITNESS CONTACT INFORMATION
Since the insurance company’s goal is to pay you as little as possible, it is crucial to building a strong case for why you are entitled to collect.
An experienced accident attorney can help you identify and gather relevant evidence to use in pursuing your Safeway insurance claim.
