How long will this take?

by Oct 31, 2018F.A.Q.0 comments

The length of time your claim will take depends primarily on your medical recovery. You should not settle before you have completely recovered and returned to you pre-accident work or your doctor has given you a definitive prognosis for the future. You are entitled to claim compensation for as long as your injuries last and into the future if there is a permanent partial disability or the possibility of on going problems. Normally the claim can be settled as soon as you recover. If you recover from your injuries quickly, the claim can be resolved within six months. If the claim is more serious with permanent ongoing injuries the claim may take 18 to 24 months from the date of the accident. Generally speaking, the length of time will be determined by the extent of your injuries and the impact it has had on your life.
