How Long Will it Take to Settle My Claim?
Because every situation is unique, it is impossible to determine exactly how long it will take for you to reach a settlement. However, you may be able to estimate your settlement time by considering the following factors:
- In general, you cannot file a claim until you have received treatment for your injuries
- If multiple parties were involved in the accident, determining liability and reaching a settlement may take longer
- Typically, it will take insurance companies several months to propose a settlement
- If you decide to file a lawsuit, then the time to reach a settlement may be significantly prolonged
Remember – there is not a set time limit in which your claim must be settled, provided that you file you’re your claim within the 3-year Wisconsin statute of limitations. Therefore, your case may drag on longer than you had anticipated. An experienced car accident attorney may be able to expedite the process, however.
