All injury cases depend on three main factors:
- Nature of injury;
- The extent of injury; and
- Duration of injury.
In a wreck, need a check? It is not as quick or easy as that sounds.
Injury cases should never be settled until the pain, suffering and medical treatment are in the past. That can take weeks, months or sometimes years. You NEVER want to settle your case until all of these elements are known.
You only get one settlement for your injury case. Once done, there is no continuing claim or future claim.
How long does all of this take? Everyone is different, but for certain, weeks, months or even years, depending on the 1) nature, 2) extent and 3) duration of the injury and medical care.
