How long will my bicycle accident case take?
I had one of my clients, who was hit by a car while riding a bike, call me the other day asking how long it was going to take until we would start talking about paying her medical bills and getting some type of compensation for her pain and suffering. As I told her, it depends on the full extent of her injuries.
A lot of times, early after an accident, we don’t know the full extent of the injuries. We highly encourage our clients to focus on treatment, focus on complying with doctor’s requests, and to get as much treatment as possible and as much treatment as needed until we have our clients at a place that’s called maximum medical improvement, where you are as improved as you’re going to get from treatment. That is our cue to start negotiating with the other side on a value of your case to see if we can potentially settle it or if we have to go to trial.
