How long does it take to settle a pedestrian accident claim?

Multiple factors can affect the length of time it takes to reach a settlement in a pedestrian accident claim. If the at-fault driver or party accepts liability for the accident and if your injuries are quickly treated and healed, a settlement might be reached within a few months.

However, if liability or other facts in the case are contested, or if you have incurred significant financial losses or must undergo extensive treatment and rehabilitation for your injuries, it can take longer to arrive at a settlement. For the most complex and high-stakes pedestrian accident claims, reaching a settlement can take years.
