Because so many different factors influence how long it takes to settle or resolve a personal injury claim, it is not possible to give an exact estimate of how long your case will take from start to finish. Most personal injury lawyers will not begin to engage in serious settlement negotiations with the at-fault party until you have sufficiently recovered from all of your injuries. If a lawyer acts too prematurely, you may not be able to recover compensation for unforeseen health complications or other losses.

The speed at which the insurance company investigates and ultimately resolves your claim will play an important role in how long it takes to resolve your case. The more evidence you provide to the insurance company about your car accident and injuries, the easier it will be for the insurance company to offer you a fair settlement within a reasonable time frame. If an insurance company has unreasonably delayed making a decision about your claim, it may be engaging in bad faith tactics.

If you and your Atlanta personal injury lawyer decide that filing a personal injury lawsuit is necessary, it could take several months or more than a year to resolve your case. Among many other factors, the time it takes to bring a personal injury lawsuit to settlement or trial depends on how clear it is that the other party was negligent, whether the other party is willing to settle before trial, how much discovery is needed, and how busy the court or judge is.

An experienced personal injury lawyer at Melman Law Group will be honest and update you throughout your case. This will make you feel comfortable knowing where your case is and should give you a rough estimate of how soon your personal injury claim may be resolved. Be wary of any lawyer who makes guarantees about resolving your case within a short period of time, such as a month. Even the most experienced lawyers can’t always predict how long it will take to resolve a claim.
