How Long Does It Take to Settle a Case

Unfortunately, there is no specific answer as to exactly how long it will take for a personal injury case to finally come to an end. Every car accident and injury tends to be different, with different people, different insurance companies, different attorneys, and others on each side of the case adding to the unknown factors of a case. A settlement for your personal injury case could be reached very quickly, in as little as a couple of weeks if there is an insurance company or individual willing to settle quickly and move on. However, a settlement could also take up to a couple of years, especially if your case requires lengthy negotiations or litigation.

Thus, it is very important to contact a car accident attorney so that you can begin the process of settling your claim and pursuing maximum compensation for your injuries and losses. The earlier that you speak to an attorney, the earlier the attorney can discuss your options with you and potentially reach a settlement for your personal injury or accident.

Why Can It Take So Long to Settle My Case?

Several factors can delay your claim being settled. For instance, the more serious your injury, the longer it may take to be fully aware of the extent of your injuries and the accompanying medical costs. In these cases, your attorney may advise you to wait before settling your personal injury case until you are fully aware of the extent of your injuries and how they may affect your life moving forward so that you are able to pursue maximum compensation.

Other factors that may delay your case being settled include if there are disputes over facts about your accident or injuries that may require your attorney conducting an investigation to gather all of the necessary facts to more ensure that you can seek the compensation you may be entitled to. Furthermore, the larger the sum of the money that you may be entitled to, the longer it may take insurance companies and other parties to settle your claim.
