Questions About Asheville Personal Injury Law

Lakota R. Denton is an Asheville Personal Injury Attorney who can help you with any questions you might have related to personal injury law, personal injury settlements and everything else related to personal injury cases in North Carolina.

Why Your Personal Injury Suit is Taking So Long to Settle

How Long Does it Take to Settle a Personal Injury Claim?

One of the most pressing issues Asheville car accident victims face is how long it takes to settle a personal injury claim. If you’ve been injured in an accident, you probably have a lot of expenses and debt already, especially if your injuries were severe.

There is no specific answer to how long a case will take to resolve, but there are a variety of factors that could extend the amount of time you’ll have to spend on your claim. Here are a few of these factors.

Attorneys generally advise clients to wait until they’ve reached MMI to settle to make sure they’ve received all their bills. Settling before you have a complete picture of all of your bills could leave you high and dry later on if you aren’t finished with your treatment and you owe thousands more to a provider.
