How long does it take to settle a Florida auto accident case?
How long does it take to settle your case? We get that question all the time. There are many, many variables to determine how long it takes. Some cases settle in a matter of a week or two if there's limited insurance coverage. And some cases involving large amount of damages or complex cases could take years. One of the things that we make sure that we do is we never rush a settlement.
It's always important that the injured party reaches what's called MMI or maximum medical improvement before we attempt to settle their case. Once a case is settled, the case is settled forever and we'll be required to sign a release which basically says that you can never ask for money again. It's important to make sure that we know everything that's wrong with you and that the doctors have examined you extensively and they know your entire medical history and have you stabilized before we attempt to settle your case.
