Prepared To Take On Big Insurance And Win
At Maho Prentice, LLP, we understand how insurance companies think because our attorneys used to work for these companies. While it may seem that your case is cut and dried, in actuality a claim can take months or years to settle. However, it is rare that a case goes to trial, in fact most personal injury claims settle.
The most effective way to ensure a fair settlement is to show the insurance companies that we are prepared for trial. This usually means we file a lawsuit in court. Typically the most meaningful negotiations take place just after the lawsuit is filed. In our experience, the largest cases have the potential to take the longest because of the amount of money at stake for the insurance companies.
The length of time your personal injury claim will take depends on many things including:
- The legal facts in your case
- The location or legal jurisdiction of your case
- The number and availability of the parties involved
- The amount of investigation required
- The willingness of the insurance company to negotiate your claim
- The severity of your injury
- Whether your medical treatment is ongoing
