How long will it take for my case to settle?
Each personal injury case is different and the length of time until settlement will depend on the severity of the injury, the medical treatment required, the amount of evidence and documentation obtained, and the insurance company’s willingness to negotiate.
Typically, the severity of the injury and the treatment required after the accident are the biggest factors in determining the length of time until settlement. If the injuries and treatment are minor, typically the personal injury claim will be resolved in a short amount of time. If the injuries are severe and require lengthy and extensive treatment, the personal injury claim could take years before it reaches settlement.
It is important to note that not all personal injury claims will settle and there is a 2-year statute of limitations that applies. This means that you must file your personal injury claim within 2 years of the date of the accident or you will be barred from filing the claim at all.
