What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

How Much Time Will Your Claim Take?

Many claimants in injury cases need compensation relatively quickly. Considering the pressing costs of medical bills, the lost funds from wages unearned during recovery, and the possible long-term impact of an injury on a person’s professional goals, the amount of time it may take can become a very important part of a case. Fortunately, depending on what decisions a person makes during their claim, they may be able to somewhat control the length of the case.

If you’ve sustained an injury because of someone else’s carelessness, you may be entitled to pursue legal action against the responsible party. This process can be difficult for a person to handle on their own, especially if they are still dealing with the aftermath of an injury. To learn more about how an attorney may be able to help you during this process, contact Jacksonville personal injury lawyer Donald Guthrie, P.A., today by calling 904-296-1088.

Understanding Legal Timeframes

There’s no definitive answer to the question of how long a case will take from start to finish. Depending on a variety of factors, a person may have to wait a significant amount of time before they can receive compensation, or they may be able to finish their claim quickly. The following options are generally available to those filing a claim:

  • Pushing for an early settlement, providing relatively quicker compensation if successful
  • Settling before a court decision for a reasonable sum, which may speed up the claim
  • Waiting for the court to decide on the claim, which can take a significant amount of time

Depending on the circumstances of the case, there’s no surefire way to know how long a case may take. However, a lawyer may be able to help a client shape their claim to push it towards resolution within a certain timeframe.
