Question:

How long will it take to resolve my pedestrian accident case in North Augusta?

Answer:

Pedestrian Accident Settlement TimelineI had a client call me who had been involved in an automobile pedestrian accident on the Aiken-Augusta Highway. He asked me, “How long will it take to resolve my case in South Carolina?” If you’re reading this, you may have similar questions. I’ll tell you what I told the client.

The statute of limitations in South Carolina is three years. If the case is not settled within that three-year period, a lawsuit would have to be filed in court to preserve the right to get compensated. Many factors enter into how long the case will take. Many times, we do not want to start negotiating with the automobile insurance company until the doctors have released our client. How long will the medical treatment last? What are the medical bills? What are the lost wages? What is the insurance limits of the at-fault driver? These are some of the factors that enter into how long a case will take.

If you have any questions about your pedestrian automobile accident in the state of South Carolina, give us a call. We’d be happy to help.
