How Long Does It Take to Resolve a Pedestrian Accident Claim?
How long will a pedestrian accident claim take?
Not too long ago, I got a phone call from a friend of mine about his grandma being injured while she was crossing the street. One of the first questions he asked was how long the process takes. It depends. Clients don?t always want to hear that, but this isn?t something that you can figure out at the onset. You need to consider several developing factors, including the extent of any injuries involved. That is not something you can figure out within an hour or two. Many times, you can?t even figure this out in the first two weeks.
You don?t want to settle a case without being fully aware of the extent injuries involved is and what the medical care needed is. These are things that a doctor will be able to help you through; with that information in hand, we can then help you better understand how long your case will take.
You have to also keep in mind that the insurance adjuster might not be very reasonable. If they?re not reasonable, that means they?re probably not going to offer you fair compensation. If they don?t do that, you might have no choice but to file a lawsuit so you can get the compensation that you deserve.
All these factors must be taken into account when it comes to figuring out how long this process is going to take. The best thing that somebody asking this question can do is focus on feeling better and give your lawyer all the information that they need. That will help you have a prompt, fair recovery.
