The length of time that a legal proceeding can take varies greatly from case to case due to the very unique facts of each case. Many factors are not within our hands and often lay within the scope of the court’s schedule. Multiple developments during a proceeding can contribute to speeding up or delaying a conclusion for a case. We ensure that all deadlines are met on our part to ensure as speedy a process on your behalf as possible.

The average time it takes for a personal injury case to go to trial is one to two years from the time the lawsuit is filed; however, the time it takes to reach a settlement varies greatly from one case to the next. This is largely dependent on the injuries a person receives. Some cases are complete in 2-3 months, and others may take much longer depending on the circumstances.
