How Long Will My Claim Take?
It is only natural to ask the question on the length of time a compensation claim takes from start to finish. It is a question which is difficult to answer as a lot of factors become involved in many accident claims, and subsequently each case is individual and as such the length of time is different for each case.
Claims with No Liability Issues
Providing there are no issues with liability, or blame, compensation claims take between 6 - 12 months. Even though these cases are relatively straight forward, there are still a lot of factors to take into account including the long term impact of your personal injury and associated medical advice.
We never rush a personal injury accident claim, and neither should you. The amount of compensation can be affected if the claim for compensation is rushed, and this impacts on your future. Be patient with your compensation case and do not expect instant results. Remember it takes time for our injury solicitors to assess and fight on your behalf, and they always push for as much compensation as possible.
Cases when liability is disputed can take considerably longer and may even go to court. If a company or organisation feels that they were not at fault and chooses to fight the personal injury claim, then the length of time increases. Again be patient, our injury lawyers are adept at courtroom proceedings and have to be given time to mount a good compensation claim on your behalf.
