How long will it take to resolve my Augusta bicycle accident claim?
I recently spoke with a man who was in a bad bicycle accident here in Augusta. His injuries were very severe, and he was going to miss a lot of work while his medical bills were piling up. One of his questions was how long his case would take. That is a difficult question that many ask. You may have the same question – how long does it take to settle a bicycle accident case?
The answer is that it is a difficult question to answer. It depends on many different variables. One of the main variables it depends upon is how badly you are injured. You may have severe injuries that are going to take a very, very long time to resolve. It may take you a long time to get to maximum medical improvement. Before that happens, you don’t want to try to settle with an insurance company; you’re only doing yourself a disservice by doing that.
Another variable that’s almost just as important is how reasonable the insurance company you’re dealing with is. If the insurance company is not acting in a reasonable manner, oftentimes you’re going to have to file a lawsuit, which can add a significant amount of time to any case. In either event, you want to make sure that you find an attorney who is seasoned in litigating cases involving bicycles, as well as seasoned in litigating cases against insurance companies. If the attorney is not experienced, and if the attorney has not achieved successful results, that insurance company is not going to be as inclined to pay as much money.
