This depends on the severity of your injuries and the circumstances of your accident. As a rule of thumb, we arrange for you to be examined by our preferred medical specialist at 9 to 12 months after the accident. That medical specialist is asked to answer a number of important questions including how severe your injuries are and what is the likelihood that those injuries will have an impact on your ability to work in the future.
Once the specialist medical evidence is obtained, it is then a matter of assessing the value of the claim.
In our experience, most straightforward cases are completed between 12 months and 2 years from the date of the accident.
If there is something peculiar about your case or it is more complicated, it could take longer.
