How PI Lawyers Work Towards a Quick Resolution on Personal Injury Cases
Personal injury or PI lawyers hear the following question from virtually every client they see at some point during their initial consultation. “How long will my case take?” Since every case is different, the best answer is it depends on a variety of factors, including the extent of the client’s injuries and treatment needed.
A reasonable estimate on most claims is less than one year and up to two years but it is impossible for attorneys to make an accurate prediction until they have had time to gather all the facts and fully analyze the case. Any case that goes to trial will take longer, especially when there is an appeal. Cases that settle typically do not take as long, but it still depends on how badly the plaintiff is injured and how much time is necessary for treatment, rehabilitation and recovery. Medical malpractice suits usually take longer to resolve because the issues involved are so complicated. Contact the pi lawyers at GGRM today so they can assist you!
The doctor’s prognosis for the injured party is a major factor in the lifespan of any personal injury case. The claimant must have a good idea of the impact on their health and the course of recovery required before attempting to settle a claim. Some injuries require months of treatment by multiple doctors for them to make an accurate prognosis. If claimants settle too soon, they may have complications later and will have no recourse for collecting additional damages since settlements are final.
The plaintiff’s role is to seek the proper medical attention and follow the doctor’s orders for the best chance at recovery. Sometimes the treating physician will determine the plaintiff has reached the point of maximum medical improvement and any residual problems are permanent disabilities. The personal injury attorney’s role is to gather the proper medical records for the case file, retain qualified experts and make sure the defendants are providing the discovery needed by the plaintiff.
