How long should my injury claim after a car accident take?
Too often, I hear potential personal injury clients weary about the process when they have been in a car accident or a truck accident, slipped and fell at a store, or been injured while at work, and someone else is responsible for the injuries. They have heard through the grapevine that personal injury lawyers waste time, and around every corner is a bad experience from a friend or family member who complain that the process was just too long. So how long should a personal injury claim take? What is the average amount of time an injury claim takes after a car wreck or truck accident? What is the general process of an injury claim after an accident? If you are looking for answers to these questions, look no further!
Q: How long does a personal injury claim normally take?
It really depends on the facts of your individual case, but generally, 6-8 months, if your matter is able to reach a settlement without a lawsuit. If a lawsuit is necessary, the process slows down because you’re are at the mercy of the Court scheduling system.
Q: Do all injury claims require your lawyer to file a lawsuit?
No! In fact, most injury claims settle without a lawsuit being filed. Normally, blame, or “liability” is clear. It’s just a matter of your personal injury attorney arguing for the damages you sustained as a result of the other person’s negligence. Often times, your injury attorney may be able to reach a resolution for you without filing a lawsuit.
