How long will it take to process my claim?

At this point, the solicitor will be able to offer you an estimate of how long it will likely take to reach a settlement offer, and this will enable you to manage your expectations from the outset.
Some of the most influential factors in determining the timescale of case completion include:
- Availability of evidence
- Time taken for defendants to respond
- Whether there is any debate on liability or responsibility
- The severity of your condition and whether ongoing treatment is necessary
- How quickly the claim was initiated as this can impact on the memories of witnesses and the availability of supporting documentation
- Delays caused by external parties such as doctors, rescue workers, witnesses and occupational health workers who might provide assessments.
