Sedgwick acquires Nationwide Appraisals

Sedgwick has announced its acquisition of Nationwide Appraisals, a US-based auto damage appraiser and inspection provider.

“The addition of Nationwide Appraisals, along with their talented team and robust technology, brings tremendous value to Sedgwick; it enhances our larger suite of services and broadens our solutions in the personal claims space,” said Jim Ryan, president of casualty at Sedgwick. “Automotive claims have historically been completed by third-party vendors, but by joining forces with Nationwide Appraisals, Sedgwick will now be able to process them quickly and effectively for our clients.”

Nationwide Appraisals’ field inspection services offer a coast-to-coast network of professionals, automated appraisal workflow and standardised reporting, using a system that directs claims to the appropriate pathways for resolution, including appraisals, photo estimations, repairs, car rentals and replacements.
