Truck Accident Settlement Timeline
Were you or a loved one injured in an accident involving a semi-truck or other commercial vehicle? Watch this video to learn about the truck accident settlement timeline and how long it may take to recover compensation for your injuries.
One of the first questions that clients ask is how long it is going to take to get the compensation for the pain and the suffering, lost wages and medical bills, for the accident. It varies and it depends on the case.
While you can get some insight right from the beginning, based on the type of injury, type of case, and insurance company that insures the truck or the commercial vehicle that struck you, there is a sense of how long it will take. The specifics really depend on you, your recovery, and how you’re doing. It’s never a good idea to sell yourself short. It’s never a good idea for your attorney to sell your case short. It’s important for them to parse this all out, to feel very comfortable that they have a good grasp of what’s to be expected into the future.
This is your one opportunity to make sure you’re fairly compensated. If you’re not, down the road, you have all these issues that you thought were going to resolve but haven’t, or you have new subsequent consequences from your initial injury. You can’t look back. You can’t have a second chance once you settle your case or you have a verdict on your case. It’s important that you understand it may take a little longer in certain situations, but in those situations there’s a reason for it.
Make sure your attorney is pushing your case aggressively, not wasting any time, which is the way we believe in practicing law here. That’s very important, that no time is wasted in terms of the actual attorney moving your case forward, but at the same time keeping an eye on the future and what’s expected and making sure they’re very well-versed on what they expect to happen in your case so there are no surprises.
