3. How long will my case take?
The most important determining factor would be whether your case goes to court for a trial or not. If it does go to trial, the time period usually ranges from 3-6 years. If it does not go to trial, the average time period is between 1-2 years. However again, it is important to remember that each case is unique, and the time period for understanding the extent of the medical issues (let alone resolving them) will vary depending on the nature of the injury. For example, situations where the injury was catastrophic, or other injuries that require long term care usually take a longer period of time. This is primarily due to the complexity of the medical issues. On the other hand, less severe cases may only take 6 months to resolve.
