How long will it take to get paid?

The answer varies depending on the treatment needed after the accident, the willingness of the insurance company to provide a fair settlement, and whether suit must be filed to receive fair compensation for your accident. Typically, the longest part of a personal injury case is the treatment phase. As your medical treatment is what builds a great case from a legal standpoint, compliance with all medical professionals involved in your case is crucial. Once treatment is completed, settlement negotiations begin.
