Frequently Asked Questions: How Long Does a Personal Injury Case Take?

It’s difficult to focus on your recovery when you have questions about your personal injury case running through your head. If you have been injured, you likely have a lot of questions and concerns about your case. To help ease some of your concerns, we have put together a series of questions and answers to help you determine how long your personal injury case can last for.

Q: How long is my personal injury case likely to take?

A: The length of your personal injury case depends on the context and circumstances surrounding your claim. With this in mind, determining a precise length of time is impossible. Some injury cases can be as long as a couple of months, while other can take years of litigation to resolve.

Q: Can a lawyer make my case move faster?

A: Similar to our previous answer, a lawyer might be able to help your injury claim move along more speedily, however, this is contingent on factors that are specific to each individual case. An attorney can investigate your injury claim by using police reports, photographs, witness testimony, and medical records. Although this takes time and resources, it will also make your defense much stronger. A good attorney can also consult with an accident reconstructionist or medical expert to establish the circumstances leading up to your accident. Although hiring a lawyer won’t guarantee that your case moves faster, it can help ensure you have a solid legal defense for your injury claim

Q: What is my case worth?

A: Payment amounts are impossible to determine until all of the evidence from your case has been collected and evaluated by a court or mediator. Factors used to determine the value of your personal injury case include:

  • The total cost of medical treatment
  • The amount of income lost from your injuries
  • Whether your injuries are permanent or not
