How Long Does a Car Accident Lawsuit Take?

Have you or a loved one had the misfortune of being injured in a car accident? If so, you may have already filed a claim with insurance. If your injuries are severe, insurance is unlikely to cover the full extent of your medical bills.

With the insurance offer being insufficient, you may decide to file a car accident lawsuit. Depending on your specific circumstances, a car accident lawsuit can take several months to years to resolve. Nonetheless, it may be your only chance of recovering the compensation you deserve.

At Mickey Keenan P.A., our Tampa car accident lawyers believe that nobody should be plagued by exorbitant medical bills following a trauma. If you need an advocate to fight for just compensation on your behalf, look no further than our legal team.

Insurance Claims

Filing an insurance claim requires providing sufficient evidence documenting your losses. This will include medical statements, pay stubs reflecting lost income, and even repair bills. If, after negotiations, the insurance company does not offer you an adequate settlement, you may need to consider taking legal action.
