How long will my bicycle accident case take?
I had a new client call me recently. She was riding on a bicycle and was hit by a car in a very serious crash. She wanted to know how long the case would take. I told her that, in all of these cases involving bicycle accidents there will be a pre-suit time period first before we file a lawsuit. During that pre-suit time period, she would be getting the medical treatment that she needs to treat her very serious injuries from that bicycle crash.
At the end of that time period, we would then submit a demand to any insurance carrier responsible for her damages. If they don’t do the right thing and settle the case, then we would file a lawsuit. You have to be patient as lawsuits can take time and can be extensive. There are depositions that have to be taken, paper discovery that has to be exchanged, and a settlement conference that will happen during that process. At that conference, if the insurance company, again, doesn’t do the right thing and settle that bicycle case, we would seek a trial date and go to trial.
