"What do you do if you're injured in an accident?" If you ask people across western Pennsylvania they'll respond, "Call Edgar Snyder!"
Hundreds of thousands of people have called our law firm to find out if they have a case, and one of the most common questions that follows is: "How long will it take?"
You were seriously injured, and you're dealing with medical bills. Maybe you can't work, and you're struggling to make ends meet. You need compensation as quickly as possible, so you hope the legal process won't drag things out.
Simply put, our attorneys and legal staff work to win your case as quickly as possible without compromising your compensation, but it's impossible to estimate how long your case will take right away. It depends on the type of accident, your injuries, evidence available, whether the insurance company is willing to offer a fair settlement, whether you need to file a suit or are able to settle, and the overall complexity of the legal process. Plus, doctors and specialists may need to determine if you'll need surgery in the future, if you will have permanent damage, and complications you may have down the road due to your injury.
Another person's case may take longer than yours, and vice versa. Every case is different – it may take a month, or it may take a year or more to reach the end of the legal process. Know that we keep your best interest in mind. We listen to your concerns and allow you to make the decision whether to accept an offer from the insurance company or continue on in the legal process. Above all, we keep you informed on the progress of your case and tell you what to expect, so you can make the best decision for you and your family.
