Since each bicycle accident claim is unique, it is not possible to estimate exactly when one will settle. However, working with a lawyer can help determine a time frame for your particular case. Filing an insurance claim is often the first step in seeking compensation after a bicycle accident, but there is a chance that the responsible party may not offer you fair compensation without a fight. Be careful of offers of a quick settlement. Very often the amount you are offered is substantially lower than the true value of your claim.
Contact a qualified and experienced lawyer to discuss your rights. If we are unable to reach a fair and reasonable settlement, you have the option to file a personal injury lawsuit instead.
An Attorney Can Help You File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Your Bicycle Accident Case
When determining how long it takes for a bicycle accident claim to settle, you must also consider the fact that a personal injury lawsuit is likely to result in the best possible recovery for you.
When working with a lawyer, they will handle all of the paperwork necessary for filing a suit. You do not have an unlimited amount of time to file a suit, as statutes of limitations impose deadlines that limit your rights. A personal injury attorney will ensure that all deadlines are met and you obtain maximum compensation for your injuries.
A Lawyer Can Help You Strengthen Your Case by Helping You Gather Strong Evidence
Regardless of how long it takes a bicycle accident claim to settle, obtaining legal representation can help in a number of ways. A lawyer can begin by filing the insurance claim and handling all communications and negotiations with the insurer.
A lawyer can also help:
- Investigate your bicycle accident
- Gather and preserve evidence
- Identify all liable parties
- Retain experts to support your claims
- Calculate the losses you accrued after your bicycle accident
- Represent you at a trial, if necessary
With a lawyer by your side, you can focus on resting and healing from your injuries while they take care of the legal process.
