How Long Does It Take to Resolve a Bicycle Accident Claim?
How long will a bicycle accident claim take?
I had someone reach out to me the other day who was injured while out on their bicycle, and one of the first questions they asked was, ?How long does this whole process take?? I was explaining to her that that?s not a question I could answer immediately. Many times, how long a case takes depends on the extent of their injuries. When you are on a bicycle, there is little to protect you, unlike when you are in a car. Your body parts are exposed, and this often means that you have more serious injuries. As you can imagine, the more serious the injuries, the longer it takes to recuperate.
It?s not a good idea to resolve a case until you know the full extent of your injuries. You are going to need to make sure you follow the doctor?s instructions. You also need to understand that the insurance company from the person that injured you is going to try to delay paying you compensation as long as possible.
In asking yourself how long this process is going to take, you need to make sure you understand that the attorney you?re looking for isn?t trying to rush you into a settlement. You want to make sure you find a lawyer that is going to take the right amount of time to get you the compensation that you deserve for the injuries that you suffered.
