How long does a claim take?

How long your compensation claim will take from start to finish will depend on the specific circumstances of your case – there is no set timescale. A relatively straightforward claim, such as a rear end car collision where the third party has admitted full liability, could be settled within just a couple of months.

The more complex a compensation claim is, the longer the claim may take. Therefore, generally speaking clinical negligence claims which require expert medical evidence are likely to take longer than a minor car accident claim.
