How Long Does A Catastrophic Accident Claim Take?

Tuesday, April 23, 2019

Patience. It is arguably one of the hardest virtues. Patience is hard because it requires you to take life day by day and sometimes hour by hour. Learning to be patient is never easy. Think of the last time you were really hungry and you had to wait for food? Think about the discomfort. Think about the racing thoughts you had or the one track mind that was consuming you ever thought. The example is pale in comparison to a parent waiting for their child to wake up from a coma, but you get the point. Our Los Angeles Catastrophic Accident Lawyers at Compass Law Group, PC have worked with many clients who have shown patience, resilience, hope, and courage. It takes all this and more to withstand the trial process of a catastrophic accident claim.

Asking how long a catastrophic accident claim can take is like asking how long it takes to get over the flu. There is a general consensus, but it varies between person to person or in the legal realm, case to case. The complexity of a catastrophic accident case is dependent on different variables such as the event, medical records, and expert testimony. Typically claims start after the result of some catastrophic accident, but what if you don’t know the results just yet?

Cole was unconscious when found by emergency medical teams. Although he was resuscitated, the medical team discovered that his clavicle was broken.
