Timetables For Auto Wreck Cases-Hiring Us To Case Settlement

Posted by Alvin Wolff | Sep 05, 2018 | 0 Comments

You're probably wondering how timing works on your auto crash case.  If you hire us to represent you, this is how it will probably go from the time you sign a contract.

Police report receipt-1 day to 2 weeks

Medical Records- Hospitals have 30 days to comply with requests, doctors sometimes are faster

Investigation-2 weeks

Case resolution from the time you stop medical treatment and we have all medical records and bills in hand; 6 weeks.   A trial could take up to 18 months or longer. 

Probably about 1% of our cases go to trial.   This timetable is not complete but it's a pretty good overview.   After doing this work for 40 years, we have a pretty good idea about what to do, when to do it and why we do it.    This timetable is for informational purposes only, your case may be different but this is a pretty good guide for you if you hire us.
