How Long Will My Boating Accident Case Take to Resolve?

The costs of recovering from serious injuries can add up fast. Medical expenses and lost wages can increase with every passing day, and some people fall behind on essential bills within a matter of weeks.

As a result, injured parties are typically motivated to settle, and they usually want to do so as quickly as possible. There is no set timeline for the claims process, though, which means it is impossible to predict how long your case might take to resolve without performing a thorough investigation.

Factors that may affect the duration of the proceedings include:

  • The severity of your injuries and the time it will take to reach maximum medical improvement;

  • The strength of any evidence of fault;

  • The total number of defendants;

  • Whether the opposing party is cooperative;

  • Whether criminal activity played a role in the accident;

  • Whether you intend to pursue punitive damages; and

  • Whether the case goes to court.

Although unanticipated delays can arise over the course of the proceedings, Donaldson & Weston will do everything possible to mitigate potential disputes, resolve those that do arise swiftly, and streamline the entire claims process.

Even if a settlement is the expected outcome, we will prepare your case for trial. This may prevent lengthy delays and encourage the insurance company to cooperate. If necessary, we will bring in experts to assist with the investigation and provide testimony.

Unfortunately, even if the opposing party is willing to settle, their initial offer might not be fair. Our attorneys will make sure your claim accounts for all damages and will calculate a reasonable settlement so you don’t accept less than what you are owed.
