After a car accident, your own insurance will pay some of your medical bills with Med Pay(Medical Benefit Payments) up to a limit from your policy. The other side's insurance won't just start paying for medical bills when the Med Pay has exhausted. Instead, they would want to wait until your ready to settle your claim and pay a one-time payment in exchange for a signed release. The settlement will be based on the information you submit to them such as medical records, medical bills, and wage loss. How long does the whole process take from accident to settlement? It varies. It depends on how much medical treatment you need and when we decide it's time to send a demand letter, outlining your case, to the opposing insurance. If we can't agree on a settlement amount, then we will have to file a lawsuit which could take 6 months to a year to go through the court process. The goal is to get better and full and fair compensation for your injuries.
