Question:

How long will my car accident case take?

Answer:

Car Accident Settlement TimelineI had a new client call in with a car accident case. She some very serious injuries as a result of this crash. Her question for me was, “How long until we get this case resolved?” I told her that every case varies, but in car accident cases, typically we have a pre-suit period before a suit is filed with court where she would be seeking medical treatment from providers to help treat her very serious injuries she had as a result of this crash.
At the end of that process, we would then submit a letter to the insurance carrier that’s responsible for these damages to do the right thing. A lot of times they don’t and we then file suit. The litigation process can take a while. I always tell clients to be patient and let the process work. We’ll have depositions, discovery exchanged, a mediation, and settlement conference where we try to resolve the case with the insurance company. If we can’t get that car accident case resolved in mediation, we set up for trial.
