Length of Time to Settle a Car Accident Claim

Negotiating a car accident insurance claim can take as little as a few days or several months. While each case will be different, consulting Atlanta personal injury legal services can help you get a better understanding of what you can expect.

Settling a Car Accident Claim

If the insurance company immediately offers an amount that is fair, you can expect to settle your claim quickly. But that is rarely the way it plays out. In many cases, the insurance company offers a lowball settlement, and negotiations continue.

The following are some of the factors that can determine the length of time it takes to settle a car accident claim:

  • severity of injuries;
  • evidence of who is at fault;
  • type of customer service you receive from the insurance company;
  • delay tactics the insurer may use; and
  • how much you are willing to accept.

Keep in mind our tips for negotiating a car accident insurance claim that may help make the process easier. 

Seeking Help from Atlanta Personal Injury Legal Services

According to the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety in Georgia (GOHS), between 2000 and 2010, there has been a 14 percent increase in the number of drivers on the road. Yet in 2010, fatal crashes hit a minimum since collection of traffic accident data began.
