Question:

How long will my truck accident case take?

Answer:

Truck Accident Settlement TimelineI had a client call recently about a trucking accident. She was involved in a very serious crash involving a semi-truck and she wanted to know, “How long is it going to be until I can get my case resolved?” I told her that the process happens in phases. We start out with pre-suit, that’s prior to filing a lawsuit. During that time period, she would be getting treatment for her injuries that she sustained as a result of that truck crash. At the end of it, we would submit a demand to any insurance carrier that’s responsible for her injuries. If they don’t do the right thing – and they typically don’t – then we would file suit. The litigation process can be lengthy. I told her, like every client that has a trucking accident, you have to be patient. We’ll have depositions, an exchange of paper discovery, and a settlement conference to try to resolve the case. If the insurance company doesn’t resolve it with us at that time, we get a trial date.
