How Long Does it Take to Resolve an Injury Case?

Discuss the Details of Your Case with a Lake County Personal Injury Attorney

Clients often ask us how long it will take to resolve their personal injury case. The attorneys at Salvi & Maher, L.L.C. know that each case is different and that it will depend on the details of your specific case.

As an example, if you were injured in a motor vehicle accident in which you were rear-ended by a drunk driver, taken to the emergency room by ambulance, and then just followed up with your primary care doctor, this case should settle fairly quickly. Our attorneys would obtain your medical records, present a demand to the insurance company of the driver at fault, and negotiate a fair settlement.

If this example closely represents your personal injury case, then we may be able to resolve your case and distribute your settlement in as little as five or six months. However, we may find that your case has more complex details. For instance, if you continuously received treatment for your injuries for over a year, then it will take more time for our firm to conduct an in-depth investigation.

Our attorneys are able to settle most cases, even complex cases, without having to file a lawsuit in court. However, if your case involves questions regarding fault or the extent of the injuries, it could take two years or more to resolve. We have found that insurance companies will not provide you with a large settlement until our work is finished, so we make sure everything is finalized before going to the insurance company with demands.
