CASE EVALUATIONS ARE FAST, EASY, AND FREE.
Once you’ve written and sent a thorough demand letter to the insurer of a party liable for your accident, the next question is how long it will take to receive the compensation to which you’re entitled.
While the period it takes to receive money from a settlement varies, you can take a handful of actions to help ensure that you get what you need in a timely manner.
This article will discuss what influences the length of time it takes to recover a settlement and provide advice on how to speed things up.

Fortunately, you can also personally quicken the pace at which your claim is settled by following proper procedure.
Some actions you will want to make sure to take include telling your side of the story, explaining why the accident was another party’s fault, detailing all losses and injuries you have suffered, and providing any necessary supporting documentation (e.g., medical records, police reports, etc.).
The less doubt you sow in the insurer’s mind, the more likely you will get the compensation you need before you know it. All in all, some settlements may take weeks to fully resolve, while others may take months or longer.
