How Long Will My Case Take To Settle?
I Want To File A Personal Injury Claim But Is It Worth The Trouble?

How Long Will It Take To Settle My Claim?
On average, a personal injury claim can be settled within a couple of months, depending upon the extent of your injuries and the treatment you require. However, every case is unique and the length of time is dependent on various factors. The time to resolve your case can change for several reasons, including:
- When the negotiation process with the insurance company begins
- The gathering and filing of proper documentation as it pertains to your case
- If a fair settlement can be reached during the negotiation process
Your personal injury claim may take longer to resolve if your case goes to trial. If the insurance company is not willing to offer you the settlement you deserve, then you have the right to take the matter to court by filing a lawsuit. A lawsuit consists of a pre-trial hearing, mediation and a trial.
If you win your case after going to trial, the insurance company may have the right to appeal the court’s decision. An appeal will further extend the timeframe of your claim. Consult one of our experienced lawyers for a thorough understanding of your options.
