Therefore, in a simple statement of these characteristics, the ideal would be for the case to be resolved within 4 to 9 months. However, some cases are expected to come out in this simplified form. However, some cases are expected to emerge from this simplified process due to problems of complexity or liability, which may extend the time needed to reach an agreement. Your opponent (the person or company you are complaining against) may also want to appoint their own medical experts of the same experience to give their opinion on your injuries.
They may not be experts in personal injury claims and are unaware of the severity of the injuries, the specialized legal process, or even both. While each claim is unique, the general settlement deadlines set out below can be used as a rough guide for each type of personal injury claim. So, imagine that you filed a personal injury compensation claim before you fully recovered, then received full and final payment from the other party, and then your injury turned into something much worse that required or deserved a higher settlement. Calculating how long it will take for a personal injury compensation claim to be resolved is very difficult, as each incident is naturally different.
As with many aspects of a personal injury or medical malpractice lawsuit, the time it takes to reach a settlement depends on several different things. Giving instructions to an attorney specializing in personal injury claims will also ensure that your medical condition is quickly identified and that you can obtain an adequate report from an appropriate medical expert. However, depending on the type of injuries suffered, it may be necessary to obtain more than one report or for the claimant to undergo treatment such as physical therapy before a medical expert can make a final opinion on the effect of the injuries suffered. To calculate how much your claim for your pain and suffering (also called “general damages”) may be worth, your lawyer will use the report prepared by the medical expert to compare your injuries with those of plaintiffs in previously resolved cases (called case law), who have suffered injuries similar to yours and who have taken a similar amount of time to recover.
