How long will it take for a pedestrian injury case to settle?
A young man contacted our office who had been injured as a pedestrian and he wanted to know about how long it would take to resolve his claim which is a valid question. If you’ve been injured, people want to know how soon they can get this wrapped up. The answer is not so simple. You always have to consider the nature and extent of a person’s injury. You have to consider whether or not they’re going to lose time from work. You have to consider what type of medical treatment they need and the expenses associated with that. You need to look at how long the medical treatment is going to last. You need to figure out if it’s an injury that is going to resolve pretty quickly on its own, or if it’s an injury that may last for a few years or possibly a lifetime. All of those different factors go into how quickly a claim can be resolved. In some cases, with very minor injuries, they can be resolved pretty quickly, within a few months. Other injuries, depending on the length of the medical treatment, could take years.
