So now that you’re planning to do it right and retain a professional, exactly how long can you expect to wait for your New Jersey car accident case?

Patience is a virtue, and you will need it during your car accident claim. Your attorney should never settle your claim too early. Once your case is settled, it is settled forever. You can never make a claim for any other injuries, expenses, lost wages, or anything else, ever again. When it’s over, it’s over for good.

One of the biggest factors is the amount of treatment you need for your injuries. If you are still treating with doctors, your attorney won’t have all the medical records and bills for your claim. The insurance company cannot offer you full value on your case if it does not have all the records and bills from every doctor, therapist, chiropractor and specialist you treated with. Your attorney will also need to get the x-rays and MRI films for your case. Your treatment may take months, and if you have surgery, you will need additional time to follow-up with your surgeon. Once you are finished with your treatment, your attorney will provide all the records to the insurance company. They will need time to evaluate all the records. If you treated for a long time, there may be a large amount of documents and bills to review. This can take another month or longer. If the claim adjuster for the insurance company is unreasonable, your attorney may need to file a civil lawsuit. If your case goes to Court, it may take at least another year to settle your case.

This may sound challenging, upsetting and downright irritating. It doesn’t have to be if you hire a highly skilled, board-certified trial attorney. If your attorney is truly experienced in dealing with insurance companies, he will give you regular updates along the way so you always know what is going on in your case. As long as you have professional legal advice at every turn, you will feel more at ease with the process. And if you understand what’s going on with your case, it won’t seem like it’s taking a long time. Instead, you’ll know that your attorney is doing everything that needs be done to properly represent you and handle your claim.
