Question:

How long will my construction injury case take?

Answer:

A young lady was in my office and we were discussing her construction injury claim. She wanted to know how long it was going to take for her claim to resolve. There’s no hard and fast answer for that. The truth is that it depends. Some claims can be resolved within a matter of months, some take several years. You have two years to file a lawsuit for injury claims. In that two-year period, we would gather evidence and investigate, and also speak with representatives from insurance companies.Construction Injury Settlement TimelineThere’s always the possibility that the case can be resolved prior to filing a lawsuit. However, quite often, insurance companies do not want to pay the full value of a claim unless a lawsuit is filed. Once you file a lawsuit, typically most cases will get to trial in about two years. Some cases can be resolved faster. Some cases, depending on the issues and the amount of parties in a case may take longer than that two-year time frame. Cases can resolve in a few months or it can take several years. It all depends.
