Dog Bite Case Settlement Timeline
Were you or a loved one attacked by a dog in New York and have questions about how long it might take for you to recover compensation for your injuries? Watch this video to learn about the typical dog bite case settlement timeline.
If someone is bitten by a dog in New York and they want to hire someone to be as fairly compensated as the law allows, one of the first questions they ask is how long the case will take. When it comes to how long, it depends on the facts of that particular case. It can be longer or shorter depending on how the accident occurred, whether it’s clear or whether there needs to be some discovery or depositions to figure out the specifics. It depends on your type of injuries and how they’re going to develop. It also depends on the type of insurance company. Who is the insurance company? Which insurance company is it? Is it an insurance company that likes to resolve claims quickly, or is it someone who takes a little bit longer?
There are a lot of other factors involved, too. To say early on in a case, generically, how long such a case would take wouldn’t be fair. You really have to weigh all these factors, figure all this out, and make sure you have an attorney who’s aggressively litigating your case. At the very least, your attorney should be trying to figure out all the facts, trying to make contact with the insurance company, and trying to flush it all out so that no time is being wasted in terms of getting you compensation.
