When will my case be resolved?
While we work diligently to resolve your case from the day you sign the attorney client agreement, timeframes for resolution are always unpredictable because of all the moving parts to personal injury claims. If a personal injury attorney tells you they will have you a check in “x” amount of days, you may want to be a little skeptical.
The first impediment to resolving these cases quickly is your health. We cannot demand the case until we know what your past and future medical bills will be as well as your long term prognosis. If we settle before knowing this information, we may not get the recovery you deserve. Once we have the necessary medical information as well as the information supporting lost income and other damages, we immediately send a demand to the insurance company in an effort to resolve the case. Usually, at this stage we know if the insurance company is negotiating in good faith, and if so, the case can resolve in a matter of a few weeks. If we are forced to file suit, we are then at the mercy of the Courts to some degree as to when we get to trial, but we continue to diligently work on your case with the goal of getting it into mediation and resolved as quickly as possible.
Again, every case is different and so is the time frame for every case. Dallas car wreck cases are usually quicker to resolve then complex medical malpractice cases in Dallas. All we can do is assure you that, as your personal injury attorney, we will work as hard and as quickly as possible to get you the compensation you are entitled.
