Question:

How long will my boat accident claim take?

Answer:

You may be wondering how long it’s going to take to resolve a boat accident injury claim.

The timeline of a boat accident claim will at first depend on the severity of the injury. Less serious injuries may be resolved fairly quickly through a settlement with the insurance company.  Serious injuries, however, are likely to take longer, starting with taking longer for the injured person to reach maximum medical improvement.

Once maximum medical improvement is reached, the timeline of the claim will hinge on the insurance company. If they are open to a reasonable settlement offer, your boat accident lawyer will be able to wrap up your claim quickly. If the insurance company refuses to settle however, you’ll need to file a lawsuit.

Once you are forced to litigate, your claim’s time frame will depend on the court’s availability, which can draw things out for two or three years.
