When Will My Case Be Resolved?
If you’re on the cusp of falling into debt due to a severe injury or death in the family, it’s only natural to want a swift and stress-free resolution to your case. As Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we always aim to get our clients fairly compensated as quickly as possible. Depending on the facts of your case, a settlement might be reached within a matter of weeks, but there’s no way to provide an estimated timeline until we have a thorough understanding of your situation. While some cases only take a couple months to resolve, others can take years. Some of the reasons for this disparity include:
- Insurance companies are sometimes reluctant to cooperate;
- Claimants are sometimes partially liable for their injuries, and opposing parties might not agree on the percentage of fault;
- Some cases involve several defendants who share liability, and there can be a disagreement regarding their percentage of fault; and
- Claimants who seek punitive damages often have to take their cases to trial.
If you choose to represent yourself or if you hire an attorney who won’t thoroughly investigate your case, the proceedings might be drawn out due to a lack of evidence. A Valyermo personal injury attorney from HPI can conduct an immediate and meticulous investigation into your case to collect all available evidence of fault and damages, thus potentially increasing the likelihood of obtaining a fair settlement without having to go to trial. As a client of Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, you will benefit from our reputation as one of the most resourceful and aggressive law firms in California. Your decision to hire us will send a message to the opposing party that you are taking your case seriously and expect to be treated fairly.
Errors and Oversights You Should Avoid During the Claims Process
No matter how confident you are in the strength of your case, it is important that you are cautious while the proceedings are ongoing. If you make the wrong statement to the insurance company or post the wrong photo on social media, it could jeopardize your entire case. With decades of experience handling personal injury claims, the attorneys at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers have seen just about every scenario you can imagine. We know how quickly a single error can derail a case, so you can trust that our team will remain scrupulous from the day you contact us to the day your case is resolved. As the claimant, you can boost your case’s chance of success by avoiding these costly mistakes:
- Postponing your consultation with an accident attorney;
- Accepting a settlement offer before getting your lawyer’s approval;
- Talking to the insurance company rather than directing correspondence to your attorney;
- Mentioning your injuries or any facts about your case on social media;
- Neglecting your medical care; or
- Failing to keep a journal about your recovery.
