How long will it take? (When will I get paid?)

If you (through your attorney) are going to be able to make a recovery in your case, the time it will take to resolve will depend upon a variety of factors.   In some cases your attorney may be able to negotiate a settlement without filing a lawsuit.   In other situations, your attorney may have to file a lawsuit with the court and your case may proceed all the way to  trial.  A case may settle within  six months to one year after the accident.   Yet a case in which a lawsuit is filed, may take three to four years after the accident to get to trial.   However, each case is fact specific so it is difficult to predict exactly how long it will take.   Keep in mind that it is your decision to accept or decline any settlement offers made along the way.  Your attorney may offer you his or her opinion, but the choice is ultimately yours.
