Several variables may affect how long it takes to settle a car accident claim in Orlando, and so there is no way to present a definitive answer to the question of how long you will have to wait for your settlement to be resolved. Some considerations that may alter the length of your claim settlement period include:
- Whether you and an insurance company can mutually agree to a settlement
- How long it takes for you to negotiate an insurance settlement
- Whether you decide to bring a lawsuit in pursuit of compensation you believe is fair
- Whether the defendant(s) in your lawsuit agree to a settlement, and how quickly they agree to such a settlement
- Whether your lawsuit goes to trial or not
There may be countless other small-picture variables that could also determine how long it takes you to resolve financial matters associated with your accident.
Florida’s Courts May Handle Many Auto Accident Claims at a Time
There are several factors that make the roads of Florida potentially hazardous, and prone to be the origin source of many car accident-related civil lawsuits each year. Some of the factors that may lead to a prevalence of accident-related lawsuits in Florida’s court systems include:
- The state’s reliance on tourism, as Rockport Analytics reports that 126 million out-of-state tourists visited the state in 2018, an unknown number of whom added to the total number of vehicles on Florida’s roads
- Florida’s status as the third-most populous state in the nation, per the U.S. Census Bureau, which may result in a total number of lawsuit-instigated accidents than many other states
You may be able to access legal services if you have reason to believe that insurance may not compensate you fairly for your losses.
