Timing is Key: When to Settle Your Injury Claim
A question you may be asking yourself and may want to ask me is; when should you settle your injury claim? Or, in other words, is timing key to settling your injury claim?
Never settle your injury claim until you have either:
- Fully recovered from your injuries, or
- Recovered to the point where you are as good as you are going to get.
This means you may not have recovered a hundred percent, but you may have recovered up to 70% or 75%. But the doctor has told you that there’s nothing further that can be done to help you get back to a hundred percent.
Do not settle your injury claim too early.
You will never be able to get compensation if your injuries continue past the date you settled your claim with the insurance company.
In that case, it’s critically essential to wait until you’ve fully recovered or reached the point where you’re as good as you’re going to be.
I hope this has been helpful.
