How Long Does It Take to Settle a Car Accident Claim?

If someone else’s negligence leaves you injured in a car accident, obtaining the compensation to which you are entitled in a timely manner is critical to your ability to reach your fullest recovery. While every car accident claim follows its own path – at its own pace – having a skilled Atlanta car accident attorney on your side helps to ensure that you will be justly compensated and that your claim will settle in a timely manner.
 

Keeping the Claims Process on a Timely Schedule

There are things that you can do to help ensure that settling your car accident claim doesn’t take longer than it should, including:
 

  • Consulting with a dedicated car accident attorney early on is the single best way to help ensure that the insurance company doesn’t artificially protract the settlement process.
  • Allowing your car accident attorney to communicate with the insurance company on your behalf (and refraining from doing so yourself) is also a wise practice that can help expedite the process.
  • If the insurance company refuses to negotiate with you in good faith, filing a lawsuit against it may motivate the insurance company to move the process along more fairly.
