How long Does it Take to Settle a Bicycle Accident Case?

The time necessary to resolve a bike accident case can vary from a few months to a few  years. It is never advisable to rush into a settlement or trial. Our goal is that our client  receives all the treatment he or she needs before the case is fully evaluated and the claim  submitted. We want to ensure the client is comfortable moving forward only after  treatment has ended and they have been discharged from care. The amount of time it  takes to resolve a case is usually dictated by the severity of the injuries and the nature  and extent of treatment. For example, if the claim involves a fractured wrist that is casted  and it heals up in six weeks, we may be able to move forward and resolve that claim in  as little as a few months. If the case involves traumatic brain injury, the case may not  resolve for many years. Premature settlement of a high damages case is never advised  because once the release is signed, the injured party can never re-open the claim. Diligent  case preparation, keeping a close eye on the statute of limitations and constant follow  up with our clients and their medical providers is vital to obtaining the best possible outcome and maximizing the recovery. There is only one opportunity to settle with  the responsible party and once the release agreement is signed, the right to assert any  future claims is lost. So never rush or be pressured to reach a premature settlement  where the full extent of the injuries and their permanency is unclear. Also, never resolve  a case where the treating doctors have not provided a comprehensive discharge plan,  including the permanency of the injuries and the prognosis of the future care needs.  Prematurely moving forward and settling a case and then later learning that the lingering  effects from the accident are necessitating more treatment can be disastrous. This is  especially the case when the injured party does not have health insurance. It is important  to understand that you cannot go back to the defendant or insurance company to seek  additional recovery if your injuries turn out to be more severe than expected.
