How long does it take to resolve an insurance claim for personal injuries from a car accident?

The length of time your claim takes to resolve depends on several factors.  First, it depends on the length of time it takes the victim to finish her course of medical treatment.  Since you never want to settle your claim before you know the full extent of you damages, you typically need to wait to present a claim until your physician says you have reached maximum medical improvement.  Second, it depends on how long it takes to present a demand to an insurance company and negotiate the claim.  If an insurance company fairly evaluates the claim and makes a reasonable settlement offer, the claim will resolve quickly.  If the insurance company offers less than a reasonable amount, litigation is required to increase the case value, and the litigation period can significantly protract the claim process.  It is not uncommon for cases in litigation to last two to three years.
