That depends on a number of factors. However, the primary factor is the nature of your injury and the type of treatment you are receiving. If all your treatment is completed in a short time frame, your case will be ripe for settlement sooner. However, if you have ongoing treatment, surgeries, physical therapy or other treatment, and the full extent of your injuries and the impact of your injuries is unknown, it is not in your best interest to try a resolve your case too soon.
