How Long Do Personal Injury Cases Take?

Personal injury cases are not one-size-fits-all and, as such, will vary in lifespan. Although the variances in each case will determine its length, it is possible to give a relative estimate for some minor injury and fall cases, which may settle within 1 to 2 years. Longer timeframes accPIount for more complex issues, such as medical malpractice, which require longer time periods due to a number of complex factors.

In many cases, the first year of a personal injury lawsuit is often spent investigating a claimant’s injury, compiling case records, and notifying any insurance companies or defendants about the claim. Perhaps the biggest variable in determining the length of this process, however, is the doctor’s prognosis for the claimant. It is crucial for a claimant to know the course of recovery for his or her injuries before settling the claim. If a hasty decision is made to quickly settle, the claimant may not be sufficiently compensated as it may not account for future complications or permanent disability.

Given that such cases can take years before reaching settlement, but funds are often needed to treat injuries without delay, a claimant does not always have to wait. Depending on the case, it is possible to acquire advanced funds on a future settlement award, making it easier to pay for any necessary treatment for your injury.
