How long will my pedestrian accident settlement take?
Pedestrian Accident Settlement TimelineIn Florida, the timeline for resolving a pedestrian injury claim, if it’s done right, is going to take some time. The forces of impact between a motor vehicle and a pedestrian are pretty severe. That means we see a lot of pretty tragic injuries. Never under any circumstances should there be a rush to get it settled. Based on whatever available insurance there is, we’re going to make sure that we work up all the medical care, and that could take six months, or even years. I had a case not too long ago where a client held out for a couple of years from the date of the accident until they ended up having to get surgery that they were hoping to avoid, and it dramatically changed the financial complexion of their claim.
We’re going to always take our time with these cases. We’re going to be patient, not for the sake of delay, of course, but based on the medical information that the treating physicians are telling us, until they have a firm understanding of what’s in store for our client’s medical future.
