How long is it going to take to resolve my construction accident injury claim?
The question often comes up after someone’s been injured in a construction accident, and often seriously. How long is it going to take to get my settlement? After such an accident, chances are you are not working, have medical bills piling up, and are stressed. That’s a very important question. Because we also handle workers’ compensation claims, this comes up a lot.
The other day someone called and spoke to our attorney, Daniel Garza, about that. Daniel explained that they can have a workers’ comp claim and a separate claim against another subcontractor who may be at fault and each of them can be resolved at different times. It’s not a simple process. If you call in, one of our attorneys will analyze your situation and tell you. We can often get the workers’ comp benefits going faster than resolving a separate claim against another contractor but sometimes it can be the reverse. There’s not one simple answer to that question. However, the workers’ compensation side will usually be able to get you some money to at least get by until we can resolve the other claim.
That’s why it’s very important to coordinate those two and work with a firm that does both. It’s very common for personal injury law firms to not be able to handle workers’ comp claims. That’s one of the first questions that you should ask when you call an injury firm – whether or not they handle workers comp claims. Rather than just hearing the answer, yes, you need to ask them a little bit more. For example, ask how many claims have you opened, workers’ comp claims, in the last month? If they hesitate or say it’s just two or three, that’s probably not the firm for you because you really need to coordinate those separate claims so you get the best benefit.
