The time period it takes to resolve your case depends on a number of factors. We cannot make your claim until after the doctors have given us reports stating exactly what your medical condition is and what they expect it to be in the future—in other words, until you have reached “maximum medical improvement” (MMI). If we try to settle your case before your medical condition is stabilized, you may lose compensation that you might be entitled to for a condition that did not show up until after your case was settled.
It is important to know that you case will not be settled until the damages have been determined and all investigation to determine who is liable has been completed. It generally takes several months to gather the necessary information. If a trial becomes necessary, it can take several years to complete a case. One of the most difficult requests we make of you is to have patience. We will work as hard and as fast as possible to settle your case quickly.
