Many people often wonder how long it will take to settle their personal injury claim. There are no set time limits (other than the Statute of Limitations) because all injuries are different. As your personal injury lawyers, we will do our best to settle your insurance claim for the maximum amount of money.
We Begin By Helping You Heal From Your InjuriesCar accidents can result in a wide variety of bodily injuries, and people recover and heal from these injuries differently. Some car accidents result in soft tissue injuries, and generally, these auto accident injuries will improve with physical therapy. Other accidents can result in more serious bodily injury, including broken or fractured bones and other significant internal injuries which could require hospitalization, extensive therapy and other forms of medical treatment. Please note that your case will not settle until you have finished all of your medical treatment, or we are able to determine, with reasonable certainty, what medical treatment you might require in the future. This way, you will likely avoid paying outstanding medical bills after your claim is settled.
Has the Responsible Party Admitted Fault?Another important consideration for your insurance claim is who caused the car accident. Many times this is unclear and we will perform an investigation to determine who was responsible. In many car accidents, there are multiple parties at fault. In this situation, insurance companies usually conduct their own investigation as well. All of this could delay the settlement in your personal injury claim.
