How long does it take to settle a personal injury case?

Length of a Mercer County Personal Injury Case

Every case is an individual case, clients could be treating for a day, a month, a year or since most cases have to be filed within two years there´s a lot of clients that are still treating when the case goes into a suit. What I explain to clients all the time is I wait until they are done treating before I order their medical records and then I try to negotiate the case. I don´t speed up the process in order to get a settlement because I want them to get the treatment they need. If I feel like they still need treatment and we are getting close to the two-year statute limitations, I´ll file a suit. I explain to them that once a case goes into suit there´s no way that we can control how long a lawsuit is going to take.  They generally take anywhere from settling right after the suit is filed to about two years and that´s because that’s how long the court process takes. If I can file a case early, because the client is done treating and we couldn’t negotiate the settlement, I’ll file it right away. I won´t wait for the two-year statute limitations. There´s no benefit to us in delaying a case and dragging it out any longer than it has to, but you surely don’t want to jump the gun and settle a case before is ripped and before you have all the damages assessed.
