How Long Will My Compensation Claim Take?
There are a number of factors to take into account in determining how long it will be before you receive your compensation. The question of liability is the main reason for there being a wide range of timescales involved.
We’re Personal Injury Claims Lawyers for Birmingham
If the other party admits liability quickly then as your solicitors** we are then able to focus on determining the true extent of your injuries and the appropriate level of compensation. For straightforward injuries such as whiplash the claim could be settled in a matter of a few months if not weeks.
For more complex injuries there is greater work to be done in assessing the full nature of your injuries and their impact on your life, both physically and financially. This often takes time as we need to ensure that we secure the full and appropriate level of compensation for you.
In many cases liabilty is not immediately conceeded by the other party and this means that evidence needs to be prepared with a view to establishing liability in a court. This makes the timescale longer. However, usually as parties explore the available evidence it can become more apparent who was to blame and liabilty and damages will be agreed upon. Our personal injury claims lawyers Birmingham will assist you fully in this process.
The important thing to remember is that any claim must be raised within three years of the date of any accident. Contact us without delay.
