I’m often asked, “How long will it take for my bus accident injury claim to settle in the state of Utah?” The answer to that question depends on a number of factors. The biggest factor is usually what type of injuries were sustained and how long it’s going to take you to heal and recover from those injuries. Some injuries are minor, and you can make a very quick recovery; other injuries are more severe and require more time and medical care to make a recovery.
Once you have reached a stable point, we then request the bills and the records from your medical providers, and we compile those and use those to make a demand to the insurance company for fair compensation. In many cases, we’re able to reach and negotiate a settlement with the insurance company. However, in some cases, if an insurance company is unwilling to make a full and fair settlement offer, we would then file litigation on your case.
Understand that we are always pushing to settle your case as quickly and aggressively as we can, however, at the same time knowing that you only get to settle this case one time. If you settle your case, you don’t get to come back and ask for more later on.
