An experienced lawyer will be able to tell you the approximate time frame for resolution of your case. A “medical end result” should be reached, when possible, before beginning the negotiation process. A medical end result is determined by a medical professional, and is the point in time when additional medical care is no longer expected to achieve significant improvement. This permits an evaluation to be performed, taking into consideration past and future effects of the injuries. After the medical end result has been reached, the length of the case may vary depending on the complexity of the case, though it is not unnatural for litigation, especially complex cases with serious personal injuries, to take several years to pursue. At Swartz & Swartz, P.C., we provide a free consultation, when we can offer insight into the time it will take to pursue your particular legal claim.
