How long does it take to resolve a train accident claim?


Train Accident Settlement Timeline

I had a client in Graniteville, South Carolina call me about a train derailment case and ask me, “How long does it take to settle a train derailment case in the state of South Carolina?” If you’re reading this, you may have a similar question. There are two main factors that determine how long it will take to settle a case.

Number one, you have to consider how long it will take for the government and private expert witnesses to determine what caused the train derailment or train accident. Number two, what are your injuries and how long will you need medical treatment? When are the medical professionals able to say that you will be at maximum medical improvement and your limitations at maximum medical improvement will be this? Those two factors determine how long a case against a railroad will take.

If you have any questions about your train derailment or train crossing case in North Augusta, give us a call. We’d be happy to talk.
