How Long Will My Construction Accident Case Take?
Our firm recently received a phone call from a client who was working on a construction site and was seriously injured. He wanted to know how long it would take to resolve his case. We told him there’s a number of things we have to assess in determining how quickly we can settle his case.
Number one, what kind of injury did he suffer, and how long will it take for him to recover? What is his long-term prognosis for recovery? The timing of a case can also depend on the insurance that the negligent party has. Insurance companies who represent construction site owners are supposed to negotiate with us in good faith to try and quickly settle your claim. Oftentimes, however, insurance companies do not negotiate in good faith and cause a major delay in settling your claim. We also may have to go to trial to try and maximize a fair compensation for you.
If you have any questions about an injury that you suffered while on a construction site, please call our office to schedule a free consultation.
