How long will my personal injury case take?

November 11, 2020

When people first meet with a personal injury attorney in Colorado, they usually ask how long their case will take. Even though the lawyer can give an estimate based on the facts of the case and what has happened in the past, there is no set date for when the case will end. Court cases that last a year or more are not uncommon. Get help from a personal injury attorney in Colorado who has handled cases like yours before.

There are several reasons why it takes so long. The wheels of justice turn slowly and deliberately. It is also essential for the victims to focus on their recovery and doctors to determine the injuries’ extent. It is then that an attorney can start determining loss of income during recovery, related medical expenses, damage to property, pain and suffering, and the injury’s impact upon future earning potential.

The details of the case will dictate the length

Unique factors tied to the case will have a direct bearing on how long the case takes. These include:

  • The incident: It may be relatively straightforward where there is little doubt of negligence or fault. At other times, the insurance company attorneys may dispute every detail.
  • Litigation takes time: Court schedules are crowded during normal times and quite limited here in 2020-2021. The trial may involve several sessions before a judge or jury hands down a verdict.
  • Strategy: It may be in the defense’s best interest to drag out the case in hopes that the plaintiff gets impatient and settles.
  • Caution: Conversely, the plaintiff should be wary if the defendant wants to settle quickly, perhaps even before contacting a lawyer to discuss the injuries.

Getting the best verdict

How long do personal injury cases take to settle? Victims often need the help of an attorney to get a fair settlement or get through court processes. The goal is to get an acceptable answer for the hurts that have been done. Effective negotiation can lead to the best deal possible, which could make the defense realize that continuing to fight the case is pointless.

what our client’s say

I thought I needed a big city lawyer for my workers’ compensation case, so I hired the Strong Arm. After he took the easy money, he told me I was done. I fired him and took my case to the Larson Law Firm, PC. They fought for me and got another $80,000.

As your case progresses, we will work with you every step of the way.
