Delayed Claim Lawyer in Inland Empire

It can be a challenge for an individual to respond to and report their injury in a timely manner. From confusion about what course of action to take, to fear of losing one’s job, many injured workers' and scared, worried and intimidated as to what the outcome could be if they reported their personal injury. The employer or their insurance carrier who fail to respond to your claim within an appropriate amount of time could also cause delays in the process of filing for workers' ’ compensation.

While there is no hard and fast rule on how long is too long, one rule of thumb is eight months. Courts will generally presume that the delay has been sufficient to satisfy a defendant’s prima facie case of the denial of the right to a speedy trial when eight months have passed.

The more complicated cases take longer to prepare for trial. The number of parties and issues involved also affect the length of litigation. Virtually all lawyers handle many cases at the same time and thus the schedules of the various lawyers involved play a role in the time it takes for a case to get to trial.
