How Long Does it Take to Settle a Personal Injury Claim

How long does it take to settle a personal injury claim? That all depends on the facts of your claim and how long the insurance company takes to decide what they want to do. It also will depend on what course of action you and lawyer decide to take after the claim is filed. If the insurance company decides to deny the claim, then you must make the decision to file suit. If you file suit, it can take months if not years depending on the dockets in the Court where the claim is filed.
