How Long Does it Take to Settle Your Case?

There is not a set litmus test for how long it takes injury cases to resolve. As with human beings, each case is unique. So from filing suit, to settlement or verdict will be different in every case.

In fact, some cases settle fast, while other cases can stretch out for many months or years. Many times it is up to the defendant's liability insurance company. Other times it's up to the victim's insurance carrier. But this usually depends on the insurance company with which you are dealing.

Most insurance companies offer low ball payouts at first. They want to settle the matter as fast and as cheaply as possible. In other words, you may get just pennies on the dollar as your first offer.

So getting what your case is worth usually depends upon how much work you or your lawyer did to gather facts, and document evidence quickly.
