How long does it take to settle a Florida auto accident case?

It takes as long as it takes for you to reach maximum medical improvement, also known as MMI. MMI is really more of a legal term than a medical term, and what it means is that your medical improvement is about as good as it's going to get. You're not going to really improve much beyond your current state at that time. Generally speaking, it can take four to six months for you to reach MMI, and it is only at that point where you should settle your case, because at that point, you know the full extent of your injuries and what kind of future care you're going to require, so you can know the value of what you can command in settlement.
