How long does it take to settle a personal injury claim? This is a common question the personal injury attorneys at Parke Gordon Law Firm hear often. It really depends on the personal injury claim. It’s impossible to predict an outcome of any case. There are two factors that greatly impact any personal injury claim. They are:
- Liability – who is responsible for the accident
- Medical Evidence – documentation of the accident, any injuries and property damage
How Long Does It Take to Settle a Personal Injury Claim?
If you are looking to make a quick claim, the insurance company will typically make a low-ball offer within a few weeks after the accident. However, most clients that hire Parke Gordon Law Firm are looking to get the best settlement possible. To obtain the best settlement it will usually take some time, months in fact.
To receive the best settlement an insurance company will require medical records and medical bills showing evidence of your injuries. This will show them what the injury was, if you’ve had any follow up appointments, and what medical treatments you might need in the future. The insurance company will typically require a client to reach maximum medical improvement. Meaning you have been given all of the necessary medical treatment available. This could potentially but rarely take years. Other documentation such as employment records as well as all bills after reaching maximum medical improvements may also take months to obtain.
