Upon filing a personal injury case, it is safe to assume that you are looking forward to the day that everything comes to an end. However, it may be a long time until this happens.
Did you know a personal injury case can last anywhere from a couple months to several years? At the very least, you will be faced with a period of a couple months, however, it is rare for a case to wrap up in this amount of time.
Note: no two cases are the same, so it can be difficult to determine exactly how long it will take for everything to work its way out.
Consult with your Attorney
A qualified personal injury attorney, one who has worked similar cases in the past, can give you a basic idea of how long your case will last. There is no guarantee, but it is always nice to have a timeframe in mind.
Your health and well being is the most important thing during a personal injury case. Even though you are hoping to receive compensation when everything is said and done, for the meantime you have to do whatever it takes to best care for yourself.
Let your attorney guide you through the process, helping you decide when it is best to agree to a settlement. As long as you are patient and realize that waiting is part of the game, time will go by and you will eventually find yourself in good position.
