Q. How long does it take to settle most bicycle accident and personal injury cases?
A. It depends on the nature of your personal injury claim. I have settled smaller claims for the full amount my client wanted within 10 days and I have settled policy limits cases in as little as a few months. Larger personal injury cases typically take longer to settle. Oregon law has a provision that can require insurance companies to pay my attorney fees for bicycle accident cases under $5,500, so oftentimes cases under $5,500 can be resolved quickly, as the insurance companies don't want to get a big attorney fee bill from me.
