What Can I Recover if I Win My Injury Lawsuit or Case?

August 7th, 2014 Personal Injury

In most cases, there’s a difference between a case and a lawsuit. Your claim is first with the insurance company. Many times, claims are resolved directly with the insurance company.

Now, the time period for a claim to resolve, it depends on how long it takes you to either complete your medical treatment or get to a place that the doctors many times call maximum medical improvement, which means the point in time where they can forecast your future. At that point in time, there’s a reasonable way to calculate what your damages are so that you’re in position to conclude your claim. Now, if a lawsuit needs to be filed, from the date a lawsuit is filed, in this area, typically, the case would be concluded in a period of 12 to 18 months. Now remember, that can always vary, and there could always be appeals after that that could take even longer. But generally, that’s the time frame for one.

After my car accident, the amount of paperwork became overwhelming and quite stressful to keep up with. I contacted Daggett Shuler and was immediately put at ease. The meeting was set up very promptly and we were told to not worry and let them handle the details.

Once the portal was set up, I received frequent updates. If I had questions that could not be addressed by email, I would receive a phone call. I never felt rushed or that my questions were not important.

Upon completion of my case, I felt that everything had been done to ensure a proper outcome of my situation. Everyone in the office is polite, respectful and professional. I would highly recommend Daggett Shuler. They made a difficult time in my life much easier to deal with.
