When a person is injured by a slip and fall in Indiana, it is understandable that the question of how long it will take to get a settlement or conclude the case arises.
How does Shaw Law Offices predict when your claim or case will conclude?
Well, Attorney Jeff “JJ” Shaw has over 30+ years of experience in handling thousands of premises liability cases or slip and fall cases in Indiana, similar to yours. Although no case is identical and it is impossible to accurately predict the actions of the defense and insurance company, there are some rules and frequent practices that Attorney Jeff “JJ” Shaw has seen throughout the years in Indiana. This helps to calculate an estimated date of settlement.
The timeline for a premises liability lawsuit will be different based on the facts of your individual case, your injury, the insurance company on the other side, the availability of medical records, the availability of your physicians to testify and many other innumerable factors. In all of these circumstances, the support of the right attorney like Attorney Jeff “JJ” Shaw is instrumental in discovering the appropriate timeline as well as navigating every option presented to you.
Trying to manage a case like this on your own and accepting a settlement offer proffered by the other side early on could be a catastrophic mistake for your ability to recover the compensation you need. The timeline for a premises liability lawsuit begins as soon as you schedule a consultation with an attorney and goes all the way through the point at which you receive a jury award or recover compensation in a settlement you have accepted.
A premises liability lawsuit can take a few months to several months or longer depending on the specifics and difficult factors associated with your lawsuit. When you sit down in your initial consultation with a premises liability attorney, make sure to ask for further instructions about what you can anticipate and common roadblocks that people encounter as they are going through the process of filing a premises liability claim.
What to do After an Accident
As soon as possible after you get hurt in the accident, you need to notify any relevant insurance company about the injuries you sustained. You will need to comply with their procedures for gathering information but it is a big mistake to provide them with more information than is truly necessary as you could expose yourself to having your own words used against you down the line. It is much more effective to have an attorney to assist you with this process and verify that you are only giving the most necessary information directly to the insurance company.
When you have a lawyer on your side, it is much easier to feel more confident. At Shaw Law, we work hard on behalf of those hurt in a premises liability lawsuit to clarify expectations and to move the timeline for recovery of compensation as quickly as possible. We recognize that the most important goal in a premises liability lawsuit is you receiving the compensation you need to put this matter behind you and to move on with your life.
As a result of this conviction, we will clarify your underlying goals, whether that is to resolve the issue as soon as possible or to continue fighting past the point of initial settlement offers that did not suit your individual needs. In all of these circumstances, the support of an attorney is unmatched. At Shaw Law Offices, it is our goal to help you get back on your feet as soon as possible, so discuss how the unique factors of your case might influence the timeline.
