After the settlement has been reached, how long until my t bone accident settlement check arrives?
A major question for people injured in a T-bone accident is when their settlement check will arrive. They probably have a lot of medical bills and lost earnings to contend with, so the sooner the check gets there, the better. It is important to work with an experienced personal injury lawyer in this case so you can get your check expedited.
Generally, there are three reasons your t bone accident settlement check might take longer to arrive than you wish:
- Factual or legal issues with your case. The defense could content your whiplash injury is not very serious and you should not be compensated to the level you wish.
- T bone accidents tend to be severe and involve large sums of money; the insurance company will probably be contentious.
- You still are receiving treatment for injuries from the T-bone accident. It is best to wait until maximum medical resolution is met before settling. If you fail to do so, you could have much more serious injuries than you thought and not enough money to handle them.
