      Were you seriously injured and have questions about the truck accident case timeline? Check out this video to learn how long a case can take.


      Question:

      How long does it take to settle a truck accident claim?

      Answer:

      Your truck accident claim timeline is going to depend on a couple of factors, and they are both going to be specific to your claim. As a result, it’s tough to predict how long your claim’s timeline will be.

      The first factor is your case timeline is going to be how fast you can recover back to maximum medical improvement. This is necessary for your attorney to effectively assess your damages. It means recovering completely, or as far back to your pre-accident level of health as possible. 

      Recovery times vary depending on the pre-accident level of health of the injured person and the severity of their injuries. Once you reach maximum medical improvement, your attorney will know whether your injuries will completely heal or if you’re going to face long term health struggles.

      It’s critical to get to the point in your recovery where this question can be answered, because your attorney must request more in compensation when the damages are more severe. You don’t want to settle too soon, only to find out you asked for far too less in compensation. 

      Your recovery journey will also reveal financial damages, such as loss of income. Though you may want to get back to work as quickly as possible, that too, will depend on your recovery. You may need multiple doctors’ appointments, appointments with specialties, surgeons, therapists, etc. 

      As soon as we can ascertain that an individual is back to full medical improvement, we evaluate the injuries and the damages and the wage loss piece. We then communicate with an insurance company to see if we can come to a full, fair, and final settlement. If we can, things can be wrapped up at that point.

      If the insurance company is not open to a settlement in good faith, however, we proceed down the path of trial. Going to trial extends the timeline of your claim, but if it’s necessary to bring you fair compensation, that’s where we’ll go.

      When addressing the issue of timeline in a truck accident case, the important thing to come away with is the importance of retaining an experienced personal injury trial attorney with experience winning truck accident claims. When you have a skilled attorney handling your claim, they’re going to keep it moving with maximum efficiency while working toward the best outcome possible.
