How long will it take to get paid after filing a claim after a car accident?
If you are wondering how long it gets paid after filing a claim – its almost impossible to say. There is no set amount of time that it will take for you to get a fair settlement. If you simply file a claim and accept the first offer from the insurance company, you can count on getting paid within a few weeks or months; however, this one-time payment rarely covers all of the damages that a victim has suffered. When you are working with an attorney, they will take as much time as is necessary to build a strong case and then go through an aggressive series of negotiations in hopes of an out-of-court settlement. If they are unable to reach a fair agreement within the two-year statute of limitations, they may need to file a lawsuit and take your case to the California courts. While it is possible that you may do some of this yourself, the risk and challenges are not suited for anyone.
