How long does it take Allstate to pay out a claim? Our attorneys are usually asked a question like this when a client comes in after working with Allstate. Truthfully, the time limit can depend on many factors, as well as whether or not the claim as accepted in the first place. It is important that you go the extra mile with learning the status of your claim and how a settlement is processed. You may find out that your claim was rejected partway through with no notification. Not only can this mess up the legal side of the claim, but it can also put a damper on your coverage. For this reason, it is important that you seek the assistance of an experienced attorney at Kenmore Law Group in Los Angeles. We’ll see to it that your injury settlement with Allstate Insurance is handled in an acceptable amount of time. We are asked other types of questions regarding Allstate’s timetable as well; some of these questions include:

  • How long does Allstate take to process a personal injury claim?
  • How long does it take for Allstate Insurance to settle a claim?
  • How many months do I have to wait to get paid by Allstate after an accident?
  • How long does it take for an insurance company to pay out a claim?

Allstate Information

Allstate has been in operation since 1931 and has operated out of Illinois since. It is licensed to write policies and provide coverage in all 50 states in the USA, and has operations in Canada as well. Despite being one of the most well-known insurance companies, it is also fraught with problems that are simply products of it being a business – namely that it wants to keep as many profits as possible by not paying out its clients and claims. One of the tactics the company uses is to delay action, leading to many clients asking questions like, “How long does it take for Allstate Insurance to settle an accident claim?” and “How long does it take Allstate to send a settlement check?”

Fortunately, our lawyers have years of experience handling Allstate Insurance claims, and we can handle your claim for you, from start to finish.

Allstate’s Timetables

Depending on the situation, the timeline in which Allstate will complete its duty greatly varies. You may have to wait up to two years for your case to be resolved. If you are fortunate, it can take a few months. In truly cut and dry cases, the entire claim will be handled within a few weeks. There is no surefire way of knowing the amount of time it takes Allstate to settle an accident claim in particular, though.

How long does it take Allstate to settle a case?

These questions are generally asked prior to filing a claim or during the claim process. Once you’ve submitted your evidence, the insurance agent at Allstate will examine all the information and come up with an offer. This offer will be based on your injuries, the impact they had on your daily life, the effects your injuries had on your job and future career opportunities, your age and career, and more. All of these factors will take some time to consider.

If you are fortunate, the insurance agent will make an offer within two to three weeks of receiving the claim. Keep in mind that hundreds of thousands of customers likely submit claims each day, and the agents are usually swamped with work. Thus, your claim can be delayed while it goes through departments.

If the agent denies your claim or makes you an unreasonably low offer, you will find it best to negotiate with him. This is best achieved with the assistance of a skilled attorney, as you may not be able to even get a hold of the agent if you try. The negotiation process can add weeks to the length of time it takes Allstate to settle a case, but an attorney can make sure that progress is being made in those weeks or months.

If my car was damaged and I wasn’t hurt, how long does it take Allstate to settle a claim?

How long it takes Allstate to settle a lawsuit for property damage can still vary, but in many cases, the lack of physical injury will greatly speed the process up. This is because there are no factors that can be argued over. Insurance agents will likely spend their time negotiating with individuals whose claims are worth a lot more; they will be less inclined to preserve low costs for damaged property.

How long does Allstate take to send a settlement check?

Once the case has been settled, you will usually have a much faster time getting a check than negotiating and getting a solid offer in the first place. The amount of time it takes Allstate to send a check is usually between 20 and 45 days. Once the check has been sent out, you can either deposit it and pay off your necessary expenses, or go to your attorney to have your portion written out to you once the fees have been taken out.

Why You Need a Lawyer

It is worthwhile to hire a lawyer if you need expert negotiation with your claim. If you only experienced damaged property, such as cosmetic damage and engine troubles with your car, and lost wages from being unable to go to work, you could very likely complete the claim process by yourself and have a settlement on its way to you within a few weeks. This is because insurance agents won’t spend a lot of time arguing with mechanic estimates and proof that you lost income at your job.

On the other hand, claims featuring personal injury and emotional damages will generally be more complex. The insurance agent will need to conduct an investigation, consider your injuries, interview other witnesses, determine the fault of the parties involved with the accident, and more. In many instances, insurance agents at Allstate will claim that you were not as injured as you said or that you were hurt elsewhere and you’re trying to blame the damages on the accident. They will deny responsibility and will say that you were driving recklessly or that you should have been more careful while on the road.

Of course, this can be extremely frustrating, especially if you have looming medical bills and injuries that have severely impacted your life. For this reason, it is crucial that you hire an expert lawyer in Los Angeles to handle your case.

We will take care of all the legwork for you, from filing necessary documents to negotiating with the insurance agent. You may find that you cannot reach the insurance agent or that you won’t get an answer for days or weeks at a time. We have years of experience and strategies handling Allstate agents, and we know the best methods to negotiating with them. We will make sure that your case is handled quickly and that your offer is not a measly sum of money.

Our lawyers have the necessary time, experience, knowledge, patience, and aggression required to bring you a settlement, and we will dedicate ourselves to securing you the compensation you deserve in a timely manner.

Problems of Bad Faith

There are laws in place to prevent insurance companies from taking advantage of their clients. These laws dictate that companies must abide by certain rules and regulations, even though there is a fair amount of leeway. Our lawyers can see to it that the insurance companies follow these guidelines; if they do not, we have the ability to file a lawsuit for bad faith. Bad faith claims allow clients to recover damages directly from Allstate if the company was not doing its due diligence to help the client.

Some examples of bad faith are:

  • Not investigating a claim
  • Rejecting a claim without a valid reason
  • Placing company profits ahead of a policyholder’s claim
  • Delaying claims from being investigated or paid out
  • Changing the information of a claim after the fact
  • Offering an unreasonably small amount of money for a settlement
  • Refusing to pay out for a claim after a settlement has been reached
  • Intentionally warping the language of the policy or misinterpreting the law for personal advantage

Our team of attorneys can ensure that Allstate does not act in bad faith. If they do, we are prepared to take legal action against them to bring you fair restitution for your damages.

Common Earnings from a Claim

Victims of car accidents generally pursue some simple types of compensation for their damages. Property damage and lost wages can be gathered, but so can medical expenses (surgery, hospitalization, physical therapy, medication, and more) and pain and suffering (PTSD, anxiety, fear, psychological trauma, and others). We will work hard to bring you full coverage where we can.

Further, if a loved one or family member passed away, you can receive wrongful death damages from Allstate. These damages include funeral and burial costs, loss of consortium, loss of expected inheritance and savings, and pre-death medical bills and pain and suffering.
