How long will it take for my case to settle?

As a personal injury attorney, we see cases that differentiate in the amount of time it takes for it to settle. The more detailed the case, the longer it will take. Some reasons your case can take more time than others include:

  • there are legal or factual problems with the case
  • the case involves a lot of money
  • you have not reached the maximum medical improvement with your medical treatment for your injuries.

Cases can take several months and up to several years depending on the severity of the case. Some auto accidents can take a few months, while a case of wrongful death can take several years.
