Unfortunately, there is no set amount of time that it takes for an asbestos claim to be completed. From application to settlement can take anything from a few months to in excess of a year, depending on the details of the case. There are many factors that will determine how long a claim will take.
The type of illness in question will play a big part in determining how long a claim will take. Generally, the more serious the illness, the quicker the claim process will be.
