How Long Will My Personal Injury Case Take?
Attorney Tyson Mutrux describes in this video how long a personal injury case typically takes.
Hi, Tyson Mutrux here again with the Mutrux Law Firm and today we’re answering the question of, “How long will my personal injury case take?”
That’s going to depend on a variety of factors obviously. But the main factor really if you’re going to settle the case prior to filing a lawsuit, is the extent of the injuries and how long the treatment takes. The longer the treatment takes in a case, the longer its actually going to take to settle that case. We want to have all of the medical records, all the bills in, or at least a substantial portion of those in, before we even begin settlement negotiations. In fact, most insurance companies or third party administrators won’t even negotiate with you until you have all of those records in.
Another factor might be, Are they are denying the claim? Obviously, if they’re denying the claim we’re going to have to file suit on that claim. Litigation could take anywhere from 9 months to 3 years. Somewhere along those lines. But in a typical auto accident case, I can give you an example. Those usually take 6-9 months. Or another way of looking at it is usually 2-3 months from the last day of treatment.
