The amount of time it takes to settle an auto accident claim in Florida will depend on a variety of factors. A lawyer will evaluate your case to determine who was negligent, what the extent of your injuries are and what types of compensation (money) you may be entitled to pursue as well as what insurance is available. All of these factors, plus others will impact how long your case may take to resolve.
It’s not uncommon to be concerned about how long it will take to settle an auto accident claim in Florida, especially if you have suffered serious injuries. You may be out of work and facing a lot of expenses which require immediate financial help.
Florida personal injury claims can be very complex. Although many are resolved within a year, cases that require a lawsuit or cases that are complex will take longer to resolve. The process can be made even more complicated where there are devastating injuries requiring prolonged treatment.
Factors to Consider When Determining How Long it May Take to Settle an Auto Accident Claim
- whether fault is admitted by the other driver’s insurance company or when they dispute their driver caused the accident and a lawsuit is required to decide the issue.
- how long it takes to complete medical treatment required for your injuries.
- whether a settlement amount can be agreed upon or the insurance company refuses to pay a fair amount to settle and
- whether your attorney has the experience to make sure your case is not being delayed.
