How long will it take?

(back)

One of the first concerns of workers who have been in maritime injuries and are considering a lawsuit is how long will it take to go through the process and receive compensation. There are many complex factors that go into determining how long it will take to reach a settlement. The first way you can help your case move quickly is to make sure you take all necessary steps once you are injured to protect yourself. The first step to take is to report your injury to your supervisor and request a complete and accurate accident report. The next step is to request immediate medical attention. To find a doctor, you can consult your lawyer, or seek out a doctor of your own choosing. Never accept rehabilitation or appointments with a doctor recommended by the company you work for, as they might try to minimize your injuries and collect information to use against you in a lawsuit. Another important step in making the process move faster is to collect statements from co-workers about the accident, but sure you get their contact information. The longer you wait to collect this information, the harder it will be to obtain.

After you have collected all of the necessary information, it will be time to determine specifics of your injury that will directly influence the value and length of your case. You will need to find out the extent of the injury you suffered and how it will impact you in the future. You will need to look at where your injury took place, as this can effect the venue where the case is filed. You will also need to determine what type of claim you have. All of these variables contribute to the time it will take to file a lawsuit and reach a settlement. The number one thing you can do to ensure you are completely prepared is to call one of our Maritime Law attorneys to handle your case. Let our experts take care of the details. We will be with you every step of the way to make sure you are taken care of and you get every penny you deserve.
