How Long Does a Personal Injury Settlement Take?
Usually on average, the typical personal injury settlement can take up
to 6 weeks to process. Each case is different, and the time frame may
vary depending on those. Before you receive your settlement check the
following events must happen:
Victim Expenses: Depending on the claim, there may be medical bills, vehicle repairs, or
reimbursement to the plaintiff. The attorney will confirm the amounts
to be sent to each creditor and medical provider.
Attorney Fees: The attorney free, court costs and filing fees also come out of the settlement
check. The attorney on the case will issue an agreed-upon fee for legal
Victim Compensation: After all the bills are paid, the law firm will issue a check to the plaintiff
for the amount. The check will be checked by the law office and can take
up to 6 weeks to be processed before coming back to the victim and the
case is closed.

Fighting Back against Insurance Companies
If you’re trying to settle a personal injury claim, chances are the
other party’s insurance company isn’t going down without a
fight. That’s because their business is based on looking out for
their own interests and minimizing their responsibility for injuries caused
by their policyholders. You may even be having difficulty trying to file
a claim with your own insurance company.
Insurance companies are in the business of making money for their shareholders.
They do that by accepting their client’s (policy holders) monthly
premiums, while minimizing the amount of claims they pay out. Simply put,
insurance companies do not make money by paying claims. They make money
by accepting premiums. You do your part and pay your premiums. When you’re
hurt its time for the insurance company to do the right thing and pay
you all of the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
If you’re experiencing any difficulty with getting fair and just
compensation for your injuries, please contact the Law Office of Shane
McClelland for help. By securing legal representation as soon as possible
after you have suffered a personal injury, your injury claim will be treated
differently by the insurance companies responsible for helping you.
