How Long Will a Case Take?
We always do our best to try to resolve your dispute through settlement, and without the need for a trial. However, this is not always possible. Predicting the length of a case at the outset is nearly impossible as so many factors are involved. Typically, catastrophic and complex medical malpractice and personal injury cases may take one or three years to settle while less severe cases may settle in a six months to a year. Personal injury jury trials may take up to a couple of weeks whereas more severe injury jury trials can last months.
