Car Accident Settlement Timeline

I recently had a client come in who was involved in a serious crash. They said to me, “Hector, I can’t go back to work. My injuries are pretty severe, and I can’t do the physical labor that I’m required to do at work.” Unfortunately, with severe damages, we are not just talking about the physical aspect or the pain you are in. These damages also impact your employment and ability to earn wages. It’s difficult because people are going to have to suffer the long-term consequences of those injuries, whether it be their job, their family or their own lives.

Lawsuits and claims like these don’t resolve over night; they take time. I tell clients to be as patient as they possibly can be. The car Accident Settlement Timeline may take anywhere from a year or longer. It all depends on the severity of the injuries and taking the time to make sure we truly understand the injuries that they suffered as a result of the crash. I ask them to do their very best in terms of treating the injuries and then also trying to get back to work. It is important that they are working with their employers on making accommodations to allow them to get back so they can earn money.
