Determining who was at fault for the accident isn’t so cut and dried - this can also cause a delay in reaching a settlement. You will need to have time to gather all the evidence you can to demonstrate the other driver’s liability. Some of the evidence may be easily accessible while obtaining other pieces may require more time and effort.

Another thing that can cause a settlement to take longer is if your claim involves a third party. For instance, if you were injured in a truck accident and it’s discovered that not only was the driver liable but their employer was as well, this will require a more lengthy investigation.
