How long does it take to get money from a trucking accident?

A Florida trucking accident case can be won in really one of two ways. Number one is a settlement. If you settle your case, and they've agreed to make payment, then typically they'll make payment within two to four weeks of the settlement. However, a win is also if you win a jury verdict, if the case goes to court. The amount of time that it takes to get paid there, really depends on whether or not the insurance company is going to take the claim up on appeal. If they appeal, the case can take several more years before you get paid. If they don't appeal, you should get paid within about 30 days of the verdict.
