How Long Does It Take To Get A Settlement On A Personal Injury Claim?
In Georgia, personal injury cases typically take from six months to a year-and-a-half but may take years depending on details of the accident claim. Factors such as the extent of the injuries and medical treatment, cases where there are multiple defendants or when the defendant is a business can make the process drag on for a longer period of time.
What Kind Of Settlement Can I Expect In My Injury Claim?
Every case is different and the settlement amount is based on several factors. The first thing the court looks at is the degree of fault attributed to each party involved. The less at fault you are, the higher the settlement. Your economic losses such as medical bills, lost time at work, any reduction in your capacity to make a living and other financial damages also play a major role. The other major factor is the extent of the injuries you suffered and the pain you suffered as a result. Other factors, including your likability and the credibility of the other party involved also affect the value of the final settlement.
