How long will it take to settle my workplace injury case?
And there’s no bright line answer to that. But, I typically tell people it could be as early as six months or as long as two years. Some cases will resolve without actually filing a suit through informal negotiations with the company you work for or their insurance carrier. Sometimes a case has to be litigated and it can take up to two years to get a trial date and go through with the actual formalities of a trial in court. We work every case up as if it’s going to go to trial even though most cases don’t go to trial. It’s important that you have lawyers willing to work your case up as if it’s going to go to a trial. That way you can get the maximum result you deserve. If you or a loved one has been injured in a workplace accident.
