How long does it take to settle a Personal Injury Claim?
August 27, 2018 - Personal Injury
When you suffer an accident, whether it’s a slip and fall, a catastrophic automobile or motorcycle accident, or an on-the-job injury, you need emergency medical care, doctors, anesthesiologists, rehabilitative services, medication, and often time off from work. With the emotional and physical stress you’re experiencing, it’s a good idea and a common thing to seek and hire an experienced attorney. Just like recovery, personal injury claims can turn out to be a long and tiring process.
When will you be compensated?
If you expect worker’s compensation for your injuries, your claim must be correctly filed within four weeks of the date of your injuries. Worker’s compensation relieves your employers from all claims to restitution for your accident which occurred on their premises. It could take a year to get social security disability. Juan Reyna, our experienced Houston Attorney, can strive to collect maximum compensation for your:
- Rehabilitative care
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Property damage
- Emotional distress
Personal Injury Settlements
Personal injury claims for injuries such as simple fractures, whiplash, and soft tissue injury often settle within one year from the date of your injury. Your attorney will begin to settle your case when you have completed all your medical care. However, it can take years to recover compensation for catastrophic injuries or wrongful death.
Personal Injury Litigation
The claims adjuster or adversarial attorney looks for contributory negligence – in other words – ways you contributed to your accident. Were you drinking, speeding, on the phone, not watching where you were going? Are you overweight? Could high cholesterol or high blood pressure cause your medical problems? Without the help of an experienced lawyer, the claims adjuster could literally reduce your claim to nothing.
