How long will my car accident claim take?
You may be wondering how long it’s going to take to resolve your car accident injury claim. The timeline of your car accident claim will largely depend on two factors. The first is how long it takes you to reach what we call maximum medical improvement. This is a fancy term that means you’ve reached the highest level of recovery you’re capable of, and the doctors are aware of any medical issues you may face in the future because of your injuries. Reaching maximum medical improvement is necessary to determine your damages. Once you’ve gotten to this point, our McAllen car accident lawyer will send a demand letter to the insurance company, based on those damages. From there, the amount of time your claim is going to take will depend on whether the insurance company is agreeable to offering you fair compensation. If they are not, you’ll need to go to trail to seek compensation.
Once your claim moves into the lawsuit stage, your timeline is going to depend on the court’s schedule.
