How long to settle an injury claim?

I am wondering how long it usually takes for insurance companies to settle auto bodily injury claims. I rear-ended a driver at a stoplight at about 5MPH back in July. He complained of no injuries at the time, officer noted no injuries. Anyways, he later made a claim against my policy, and my adjuster said it is still unresolved (been about 3 months now).
