There is no standard timeline for settling a case. It depends on many factors, such as how badly you were injured, how long it takes for you to heal, and when your doctor is able to understand what your medical needs will be in the future. The more serious your injuries, typically the longer the period of medical treatment. Regardless, it is best to wait until you have healed from your injuries before settling; once you settle, your claim is over.
