Filing a personal injury lawsuit after a car accident can help you recover the compensation you need for sudden costs, including medical treatment and lost wages, from the responsible party.
Learn about the process and what you may be able to expect.
The Personal Injury Timeline
The personal injury timeline can vary greatly depending on the type of car accident and injury, the number of parties involved, and much more.
A typical personal injury claim will have the following steps:
- Receive treatment and retain medical records.
- Hire an experienced personal injury attorney.
- The attorney will investigate your claim and review your medical records.
- The attorney will make a demand to the other party.
- If you and your attorney cannot reach a fair settlement with the other party, you may decide to file a lawsuit to pursue damages.
A personal injury case can range from months to years, depending on the complexity of the case and your attorney’s skill set. The simpler your accident and injury, the faster the case will be resolved. Other cases, where liability is more complex (such as in a truck accident), may take longer.
In Pennsylvania, you have two years to file a claim after your car accident. Any longer than that, and you risk relinquishing the compensation to which you’re entitled.
