How long does it take for insurance to settle a claim on a car?

I submitted a claim on my insurance last week, and I haven't heard anything back yet. How long does it normally take for an insurance company to settle a claim?

Answer
Submitting a claim can be a frustrating experience, and not knowing your insurance company’s time frame can make it even more frustrating.
While the time it takes for a claim to be settled varies due to a number of factors relating to the claim, but, claim settlements should normally take less than 45 days to complete.
To speed up this process, take prompt action and keep clear documentation of the accident. Also, it’s essential to be in communication with your car insurance company to maintain a speedy settlement on your claim.
