Question:

How long will it take to resolve my slip and fall case?

Answer:

People often ask, “How long will a slip and fall case take to finish and get money?” I can’t answer that question because there are so many factors involved. One is how long it will take you to heal, how long it will take us to evaluate your case, how long it will take us to get all the evidence we need to look at, and where all the witnesses are.Slip and Fall Settlement TimelineWe have to do all the initial stuff first. Second, we don’t know if the insurance company is going to be reasonable and offer a reasonable settlement offer. If they don’t, then we have to file a lawsuit. If we file a lawsuit, then it’s a whole other situation. We have defense lawyers, maybe several, to deal with. We have a court system that we have to get a jury trial date, and we don’t always get exactly what we want when we want. It can take several years to resolve this case at the end, but if you hire an attorney early, you have a better chance of getting this thing started quicker and ending sooner.
