How long will it take for my personal injury claim to settle?

No two injury cases are the same, and each has its own facts and circumstances, such as the severity of your injury, how the accident occurred, the type of medical care needed, and other essential factors. The more complicated your case is, the longer it can take to go through the claims process. While each case varies widely, it could take one to two years from the time of the accident to the resolution of the case by either settlement or a court trial.
