Baltimore, MD asked in Car Accidents for Maryland

Q: question, I was hit by a uhaul truck last year on Aug 2nd. And it has not settled yet. Why is it taking so long

I was hit by a uhaul truck last year. It was the other party's fault. I've been to therapy and finished everything. My lawyer has all the drivers info but she does not want to cooperate with her insurance investigation. It's frustrating because my life has been ruined and it seems like my lawyers are dragging their feet and the other party as well.

A: Your attorney should answer this question for you.

It can take a long time, many months, sometimes years, to do all that is necessary to even ask for a settlement, and longer to get a settlement. And, if a lawsuit is filed, it can take years to get to trial.
