The average bicycle case takes about four to six months and many people wonder why it even takes that long. The main reason is that you want to know the full extent and range of your injuries from the accident. You want to make sure you’re going to the doctor and getting treatment, and you want to get to the point where you’ve reached maximum medical improvement. That is, you’re at the point at which you’re not going to improve anymore. It is only at that time that you’re going to know what all your past medical bills are, what your present bills are, and what your anticipated future medical bills are. That’s why it takes about four to six months.
