How Long Does It Take For a Personal Injury Claim to Settle?How Long Does It Take For a Personal Injury Claim to Settle?

A common question our clients often have is how long will it take for their claim to settle. It is quite difficult to answer this as each Personal Injury Claim is unique. At McGee Solicitors, we are leading Solicitors in Personal Injury Claims. Our priority is to provide an exceptional service, to make our client’s feel relaxed in the hands of expert Personal Injury Solicitors and to obtain Maximum Compensation for every client.

The length of time a claim will take to resolve usually depends on:

          the extent of injuries sustained and future treatment required.

          whether or not the other party admits fault for the accident and the attitude of the Insurance Company involved.

A relatively straightforward claim such as a car accident in which someone has sustained relatively minor soft tissue injuries that resolve within a few weeks, and in which the other party admits fault right away can often be settled within a matter of weeks.

If liability is denied by the other side then taking the case to Court may be the only way to advance the case. This will obviously take longer.

The severity of the injuries sustained can also cause some delay as we may need to obtain further medical reports or scans. This ensures that we are able to fully investigate your injuries so that we can obtain maximum compensation.

The severity of injuries sustained and prognosis for recovery has a direct impact of the amount of compensation that you will be entitled to. For example, someone who has sustained broken bones and faces a long recovery period will receive more compensation than someone who has sustained relatively minor soft tissue injuries that resolve within a number of weeks.

Why Choose Us?

Michael McGee wanted to create a law firm that really cared about his clients. Other law firms seem to be distant and impersonal and hard to get hold of. Michael realised that many people were not getting the legal service they deserve and he was determined to do things better than the other solicitors out there.

We specialise in accident claims and we really care about our clients. Michael realised that many other solicitors claim to specialise in personal injury law but do not have the focused expertise of a law firm that specialises in the area of whiplash claims.
