How Long Will My Car Accident Claim Take

So how long will your car wreck claim take to complete. The simple answer is that depends. It depends on many factors.

1. Was there clear liability? Was it one hundred percent the fault of one party or to several drivers carry fault or blame for the accident.

2. Was anyone hurt? If not one was hurt the property damage claim to the vehicle should not take longer than a couple of months. If someone was injured did they seek treatment right away or are there major gaps in treatment.

3. Is there insurance coverage on the at-fault driver? If not, does the at-fault driver have any assets to pay for your medical care and your vehicle. Clearly a claim with no insurance coverage is much more difficult to pursue and collect on.

4. Does the other side want to settle? This can be the most important factor. If the other side does not wish to settle then likely a lawsuit will have to be filed and that can take much longer to resolve.

  • Awesome Lawyer and very helpful!

  • Mr. Wilson is truly a very good person who cares about people. I understand he selected this career but I do know he makes many sacrifices to help he’s clients. I am very grateful to have had him as my attorney and if I ever have to use one again (hopefully not) it will be Mr. Wilson.

  • He worked with me. He told me everything. He called me. He gave me all the information.

  • He will be my family lawyer from now until the end because I can trust him.

  • He's just a great guy.

  • He always calls you right back and even if it's on the weekend - he's going to call you back.
