Question:

How long will it take for a pedestrian accident case to settle?

Answer:

I got a call just yesterday from someone who’d been hit as a pedestrian and they wanted to know in the first call, “How long is my injury claim going to take?” There’s no way to answer that exactly because it depends on a number of factors that are all individual to you.Pedestrian Accident Settlement TimelineIt depends on whether or not there’s coverage by the at-fault driver, because in the state of Florida there’s no requirement of bodily injury coverage – though we try every year to change that in the legislature – and it depends on the extensive nature or non-extensive nature of your injuries. As we all know, it depends on the lawyer that you hire because the insurance companies know which lawyers handle these cases, which lawyers settle these cases, and which lawyers are willing to try your case if you don’t get a fair offer.
