Just as each auto accident is different, so can the factors in determining whether or not you have a viable claim to pursue. Determining the “at-fault” driver, investigating the accident through police reports and witness accounts, and determining the insurance coverage in place at the time of the accident, are just a few factors that can affect both whether there is a claim to pursue and the amount of compensation that may be available.
If you were injured in an auto accident due to the negligence of another, you may be able to receive compensation to cover your medical injuries. The compensation available to you can depend upon the type of accident and the type of insurance in place at the time of the accident. Consulting with your auto-accident attorney can help you to get the most compensation from your or the other motorist’s insurance. Some medical expenses may be paid through a “medical payment” policy on your own insurance, while other compensation may need to be worked out with the at-fault driver’s insurance.
Again, many variables can effect the amount of time that it can take to pursue an auto accident injury claim, and thus there is no specific time frame. One such variable is the severity of the injuries incurred and amount of time it takes complete treatment of those injuries. Another is the amount of time it takes to collect supporting documentation, such as police reports, witness statements, and medical records. The amount of time it takes to negotiate your claim with the insurance company or whether or not legal litigation is ultimately required also affects the claim’s timing.
