How Long Will My Compensation Claim Take?
Some compensation claims will take months to be concluded and some will take years.
We will do our utmost to conclude your compensation claim as quickly and efficiently as possible, and to obtain the best possible settlement for you.
If your compensation claim is straightforward and there are no complications or arguments about any elements of your claim then we would hope to conclude it within 6 to 12 months.
But there are a number of factors that can affect the length of time it takes to conclude a compensation claim. The two main ones are:-
- Arguments with the other side about the circumstances of the accident and who was to blame.
- Arguments with the other side about the medical evidence on the seriousness of the injuries you have been sustained and the amount of compensation you should receive for those injuries.
Insurers will try to minimise your claim or avoid paying you anything at all. You will need an expert compensation solicitor to fight got the full amount to which you are entitled. That can take time.
We will be able to give you a better idea about how long your compensation claim is likely to take after we have spoken to you about it and carried out initial investigations.
