Car Accident Frequently Asked Questions

car crash frequently asked questionsHow long does it take to settle a car accident claim?

Just as no two accidents are the same, neither are two car accident cases. If you are no longer treating your injures and your case settles out of court then you can expect everything to be concluded within a 4-to-12-month range. But if your case ends up requiring a lawsuit to be filed, then your claim may not settle for years. The discovery phase alone can go on for 6 to 12 months. Luckily, most personal injury cases do not go to trial.

What are the benefits of hiring an injury lawyer to represent my car accident claim?

Multiple studies have shown that hiring a car accident lawyer to represent your car accident claim can have a profound impact on the potential settlement you receive. Our car accident attorneys have decades of experience negotiating fair settlements with insurance adjusters and will argue your case before a judge and jury if required. The staff of The Advocates Law are experts at obtaining comprehensive medical records, ensuring your medical bills are paid and do not fall into collections, and we can even help you get into a rental car while your vehicle is being repaired. To be honest, hiring an attorney is one of the best decisions you can make for your case and can potentially increase the settlement you receive exponentially.

How large of a settlement should I expect?
