How Long Does a Personal Injury Case Take to Settle?
Bert Parnall and the injury attorneys at Parnall Law are successful in settling most cases that we handle. But the length of time a case takes to settle may vary considerably depending on a number of factors, including the severity of the injuries and the medical care required, the complexity of the investigation, whether the facts are in dispute and the willingness of the opposing insurance company to settle.
If the liability is not in question, the cases may settle within a few months without a lawsuit. But complex injury cases in which the facts are in dispute and the stakes are high may take several years to settle. Just because your relative received a settlement check in three months does not mean that your case can be resolved that quickly.
