It varies. There is no set time frame. It will depend on the insurance representative, the diligence of your attorney, and how strong of an argument for reduction your attorney has (based on the facts of your case). I have personally resolve a lien of this matter in 24 hours, and some have taken several months. Be patient, and let your attorney do his job. Best of luck.
