There is no definite answer to this.
If you have been involved in an accident, it is understandable to want everything to get back to normal as soon as possible. And we understand that this can extend to any personal injury claims you are pursuing. We will guide you through every stage of your claim. We can’t promise that your claim will be completed quickly – no law firm can in all honesty – but we can promise to work with you to make the process as hassle-free as possible.
The duration of a claim depends upon many different circumstances. One of them is your recovery time. It is always best to make sure your injuries are as completely resolved as possible before settling a claim – that way the extent of your injuries can be properly documented and all additional losses you have suffered can be included in your claim.
Other factors can also play a part. If the people you are claiming from are disputing certain aspects of your claim, it can take time to gather and present the evidence required to establish your case.
Areas of dispute can also lead to court proceedings. These tend to lengthen the time a claim will take. However, even if court proceedings are started, the vast majority of cases are resolved before they need to be heard in a courtroom by a Judge (not a jury).
