How Long Will My Personal Injury Claim Take To Resolve?
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SETTLE MY PERSONAL INJURY CLAIM?
A personal injury claim cannot be settled until you have completed your medical evaluations and treatment. This means that you have reached maximum medical improvement and your doctors are satisfied that they have determined the nature and extent of all of your injuries. The length of time necessary to compete your medical evaluation and treatment will vary greatly with the type of injury you sustained. Obviously if your injuries are significant the time may be considerably longer for recovery. It is important not to attempt to settle your personal injury claim until you have completed all medical treatment and reached maximum medical improvement.
In Florida there is a four year Statute of Limitations for actions arising in negligence but Statutes of Limitations vary depending upon the the type of case and where the case is being handled; therefore it is important to consult with a lawyer and to act quickly to protect your rights.
