It will vary a great deal depending on the nature of your injuries and other particular circumstances of your case.
If you have been involved in an accident with a truck or other commercial vehicle, the circumstances of your case are unique, as are your injuries and healing process. At Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC, our attorneys use a proven formula to determine the value of truck accident cases which takes into account the severity of your injuries, how long your healing will take, whether you suffered temporary or permanent disabilities, and if you will need additional treatment, rehabilitation, or surgical procedures in the future. Then we factor in the amount of compensation previous plaintiffs have received in situations similar to yours,
Our investigators will determine the insurance coverage carried by the trucking company and whether it has parent corporations or umbrella insurance policies that might be applicable to your claim. Once we have calculated the value of your claim, we can begin the negotiation process with the trucking company and its attorneys to try to reach a favorable out-of-court settlement. If they are unable or unwilling to provide adequate monetary compensation for your damages, we will build a strong case to present to a judge or jury.
How Long Does it Take to Resolve a Trucking Accident Case?
It will largely depend on the circumstances surrounding your case. These cases can be settled in as little as three months or take as long as three years, but on average most are resolved much sooner than that.
Further, the Illinois two-year statute of limitations restricts the amount of time you have to bring a personal injury lawsuit before you forfeit your recovery rights forever. However, calculating the deadline based on the statute can be complicated; your attorney can identify the applicable deadline in your case.
