A truck accident can be a devastating incident, one that leaves you with countless injuries and long-term losses. Your medical bills may be adding up, you need funds for the time you missed at work, and you are overwhelmed with the claims process. Just how long does it take to settle a truck accident claim with the help of a Boston truck accident lawyer from DiBella Law Offices, P.C.?
What to Expect When Filing a Truck Accident Claim
Remember that in every situation of a truck accident, you could be dealing with multiple parties, including the truck driver, the company that owns the truck, and third parties that caused the accident. Many of these organizations have highly skilled and experienced insurance adjusters who will work hard to reduce what they pay to you. That process can take time.
Typically, you can expect a Boston car accident lawsuit to be approved within a few days or weeks if there is clear evidence of the accident that is hard to refute and you agree to the amount they propose to provide to you. Other times, the process can take months and even years if it is a serious injury with numerous losses. Unfortunately, this can be hard to manage for many people facing these losses.
Our car accident attorneys can offer help and guidance, and in some cases, we can work to speed up the process. Our experience helps us to present a hard-to-refute claim, and then we work closely and efficiently with the insurance company to ensure they settle as quickly as possible. There are times when going to court is necessary, though, and that can delay the process.
How the Court System Can Slow Things Down
The Massachusetts Court Process is rather complex and involves numerous departments and various required steps to move a lawsuit from initial filing to conclusion. The goal is never to make a victim wait, but there are thousands of cases that go through the courts every month. That means that if your car accident claim needs to go to court, it will take some added time.
One of the reasons for this is that, beyond the formalities required under the law for notifying parties, both parties are given time to investigate the incident and formulate claims and statements. There is the evidence recovery period, and time to speak to both parties is required. In short, there are a lot of instances in which this process will take time.
Most of the time, a case should be decided in the court within 130 days if it goes to an appeals court, but that does not mean this always happens. It also means there are numerous opportunities for the other party to delay the case. It is frustrating, but unfortunately, it is a part of the personal injury claim process.
How an Attorney Can Help You to Get Your Money Faster
As your truck accident attorney in Massachusetts, we take your losses seriously and will fight hard to ensure that you receive the best possible access to the care you need. This includes your medical care, repairs for your vehicle, and filing your claim. We cannot control the insurance company, but we can make it much harder for them to delay the proceedings.
One of the ways we can do this is by providing as much evidence as possible at the time of the truck accident claim, which makes it very difficult for the insurance adjusters to refute the claims, deny them, or even negotiate them down further than expected. We provide a solid case of evidence that will backup your claim and ensure that the insurance company does not feel it can fight back against it, therefore reducing the risk of delays. Our legal team is dedicated to working closely with you to better understand what your rights are in these cases.
When you hire our team to represent you in a claim like this, and there are claims or delays related to the insurance company, we can work closely with you and the insurance company to resolve them. It is our experience that can make a big difference in the outcome of your legal matter. We encourage you not to wait but to reach out to us immediately for the guidance you need.
We've offered crucial support and guidance to individuals who have suffered injuries, ensuring their financial and emotional well-being.
Breaking Through the Complexity of a Truck Accident Case
There are numerous factors that can slow down a truck accident case, but our team and our experience can help you to work through them. You do not want to settle too soon for less than you are owed, and we will not encourage you to do that. Some of the most common reasons for truck accidents taking longer to settle include the following:
- The complexity of the accident and the resulting injuries you have (often, you do not know the extent of your recovery for some time)
- The determination of who is to blame, such as the driver, the driver’s employer, the vehicle maintenance team, or the company loading the materials
- The impact of catastrophic injuries and death takes time to calculate and estimate in terms of value
- The access to comprehensive insurance to cover the accident or, if not enough is available, the steps to securing additional funding from the at-fault party
- Dedicated insurance adjusters who are motivated to do all they can to reduce how much is paid out in every case
Put our truck accident attorneys in Massachusetts to work for you so we can help you reduce these delays. You may be able to get your case closed faster. That may mean more money in your pocket sooner.
