The length of time taken to finish a claim and get paid varies according to the type of claim and the individual circumstances of the claimant. A claim can not be settled until an injured person recovers to the extent that their medical condition is stable and stationary and not likely to further improve with medical or surgical treatment in the foreseeable future. Some injuries take longer to heal than others and so a time frame is difficult to estimate until we can obtain some basic information about your medical condition and also obtain a medical specialist's prognosis. At our initial consultation, we are able to provide an estimate of how long we expect your claim to take from the time when you reach the stable and stationary point. When your claim is settled, it usually takes between 4 to 7 weeks to receive your compensation payout.
