How long does a Personal Injury Claim take?
This is a question I am often asked and the true answer is that it takes as long as is necessary to get a fair result for our clients. Take two contrasting cases that I’ve had recently.
The first involved an apparently innocuous accident in a college restaurant when my client apparently suffered a simple sprained ankle. Five years later we have finally settled the case for a substantial five figure sum. No one would have predicted that it would have taken this long but the client didn’t recover from the injury in the way that would have been expected and more and more medical appointments were required because the injury didn’t heal as predicted.
The second was a work accident where my client broke both of his legs. He was a hard working man and the initial expectation was that this would affect him for the rest of his life and it might take a very long time before we could properly value the case. In the event he made a remarkable recovery and received a very substantial settlement within a year.
At Ringrose Law, we treat every client as an individual. We look at the value of each Personal Injury claim on its merits and deal with it accordingly. Of course, we always aim to achieve the maximum settlement in the shortest time possible but these contrasting cases help to illustrate the care we always take to do our best for each client.
