The time frame for settlement will vary depending on the individual circumstances of a case, however most cases commonly take between 2 and 3 years to conclude.
Factors which may affect how long your compensation claim will take to conclude include:
- The extent of your injuries and the impact on your health and quality of life. Complex or serious injuries may require a lengthy period of time for recovery and we will need to be in a position to assess the full impact of the injury which may not be clear for sometime.
- When the negligence took place.
- Whether the defendant admits liability. If a defendant admits liability, claims can usually be concluded much faster.
