How Long Will A Personal Injury Case Take?
Every single client is unique and every single client’s case will take a different amount of time. One of the main factors in determining how long a personal injury case will take can be the amount of medical treatment necessary for recovery.
If a client gets rear ended in a car accident and breaks their legs they are going to require a significantly longer recovery period than a client who gets rear ended and suffers only minor soft tissue damage.
A factor that sets apart the Nazarian Law Firm is that we never rush our clients to complete settlement just to get a settlement quicker.
Many firms will tell their clients to complete treatment as soon as possible just so they can get paid, but what happens is the client gets screwed over in this fashion.
When you decide to settle early you cannot recover any further damages for medicals. This is never the right decision for a client because many injuries can linger and have flare ups soon after a client “is rushed” to settle a case. Once you have settled, the case you cannot recover anymore for medical services. If the client has to start up treatment again they will have to pay for everything out of pocket.
When you are in an accident you have a 2-year statute of limitations to file a lawsuit against the guilty party. There is no rush to settle a case if the client is still in pain.
A typical timeline for a personal injury case can be a couple months if the injuries are minor and a couple years for significant injuries. There are so many factors involved in how long a case will last. It is important to team up with a firm that has your best interests in mind.
