How long will by Calabasas car accident lawsuit take is one of the most common questions we get from clients just after asking how much their case is worth. And rightfully so, the financial impact a serious Calabasas car accident can have on you and your family can be tremendous and the more days that go by without a payment means the further and further you get into debt. We get it and work hard to maximize your settlement as absolutely quickly as possible. Here are some important things to know about any California car accident timeline:
- Don't settle: Especially when you have a really clear case you will probably get a quick low-ball offer from the other party that can be very tempting when you need the money. Do not take this offer until you talk to Walch Law. These insurance offers are an attempt to capitalize on your lack of legal representation and need for money-- working with us means you will likely get significantly more money.
- Collect evidence: the more evidence you have together and organized, the faster we can do our job. Write down your entire recollection of what happened, have your doctors names and hospitals written down and bring along any pictures or additional witness information you might have.
- Settlement versus trial: Settlements always happen faster than trials and for that reason and many others the overwhelming majority of cases reach an agreement well before they would go to trial and that is usually good news for you. If you do have a case that is going to trial it will take longer and something that we can help to adjust the timeline expectations around when it is at that point.
- Insurance policy limits: in most cases, we will be going after the maximum of the other party's insurance and if there is a need, your under-insured policy as well. Cases can take a bit longer when we are trying to max out both (as opposed to one) policies but the good news is that means a lot more money for you.
