Bicycle Accident Settlement Timeline
Were you injured in a bike accident and have questions about how long it will take for you to be compensated for your injuries? Watch this video to learn about the bicycle accident settlement timeline and when you can expect to be compensated for your injuries.
If you are seriously injured in a bicycle case in New York and you want to know how long that case will take, there’s really no clear answer. That’s a very complex question and the answer is based on many variables. Number one, how soon will we know the full extent of your injury? We want to get you every penny that you are due because of that injury. We wouldn’t want to settle too early, and then find out later that the injury is bigger than we thought and you didn’t get all the money that you should have. Number two, who is the insurance company or the other defendant who’s going to be paying the money? Some insurance companies are very fair, they’re very easy to deal with, and they pay out without too many problems. Other companies will not pay a penny until you’re literally picking a jury in court.
This is just a few of the many factors that go into the length of time that it takes to push your case to an end. Any serious injury we have, we immediately put into suit; we don’t delay. We start a lawsuit the first week you hire us, so we can get to court as quickly as possible and get you the full amount of money that you’re due for your injuries in the shortest period of time.
