Question:

How long will my boating accident case take?

Answer:

Boating Accident Settlement TimelineYou may be wondering, “How long is it going to take to handle a boating accident case?” There are different phases and it’s hard to know right away how long it will take. The first phase that we start out with is called pre-suit. During that pre-suit time period, before we file the lawsuit, any medical treatment that’s needed for the injuries from that boating accident would occur. At the end of that time period, we would then submit a demand to an insurance carrier that’s responsible for the injuries from that boating accident.

If the insurance company doesn’t do the right thing and settle that boating accident case, we would then file suit. Suit can be extensive. I tell clients, as I told this potential client, to be patient. It could take a while. There are depositions that have to occur. There is paper discovery that has to be exchanged. There’s a mediation that will occur in every case, this one included. At that time, if the insurance carrier does not do the right thing and settle this boating accident case, then we would get a trial date and we would try that case.
