How long will it take to resolve my boat accident case?


Boat Accident Settlement TimelineI recently spoke to a woman from North Augusta who was injured as a result of a boat accident, and one of her first questions was, “How long does it take to resolve my claim?” The response to that is that it depends. It really depends on two factors. The first factor is how badly the person is injured. If the person is not injured very badly, then the case will probably proceed fairly quickly. If someone’s injuries are more significant, then their medical treatment is going to take longer to complete. You really don’t want to make any type of move toward settlement if you are still actively treating for the injury.

At the same time, it can also depend upon the type of insurance company with which you’re dealing. Some insurance companies are more reasonable than others. Some insurance companies are more credible than others. If you are dealing with a reasonable insurance carrier that wants to go ahead and resolve the case, then your case will resolve basically as soon as you reach what they call maximum medical improvement. If you’re dealing with an insurance company that’s not so reasonable, however, then you’re going to have a longer process, and you may end up in litigation.

In either event, I think that it’s very important for someone to go ahead and find an attorney early in the process, a trial attorney who has experience in representing people injured in boating accidents, so that that attorney can go ahead and begin the process and start prosecuting the case as soon as possible. If anyone out there has been victimized in a boating accident, please give us a call. We’d be more than happy to answer any questions you might have.
