How long does it take to settle a Maryland auto accident case?
If you’re injured in a Maryland auto accident case, the most important thing is for you to receive immediate treatment and to treat your injuries to get better. Once you’ve received that treatment, your doctor will release you from care. It really isn’t until that time that you should consider settling your case. It’s important to ascertain the extent of your injuries and not settle before that time so that you get the best settlement that you can. Additionally, once you settle your claim, you’re not able to open it in the future, so if there are injuries that you were not aware of, you would not be able to be compensated for them if you have already settled your claim. Sometimes it takes six months to settle a claim. Sometimes it takes two years. It just depends on your injury.
