How Long Does It Take To Settle A Typical Claim?
There’s really no such thing as a ‘typical claim’ hence depending on your specific case, it could take anywhere from several weeks or months to several years to reach a settlement.
A significant factor in the overall duration of a personal injury case is the amount of time it takes for you to undergo any required medical treatment. Since recovery time varies, this can affect the overall cost of treatment and also the level of pain and suffering you endure. So it’s generally in your interest to wait until your treatment is completed, at which point we can move forward for a settlement. Of course this is a rule of thumb, so please be sure to speak with a personal injury attorney and receive legal advice specific to the conditions of your case.

OUR ADVICE TO YOU:
It’s often the case that the outcome of an accident or injury claim can hinge on the smallest of details. While it may seem appealing to try to handle a case on your own, it’s rare that acting independently of a lawyer will yield the best results for the plaintiff. Therefore, whilst we encourage you to read the useful articles at our website, we strongly recommend that you seek sound legal advice before attempting to deal with any type of accident or injury claim on your own.
