How long does a lawsuit take?

We assure all our clients that we will, of course, try to settle the case expeditiously, but that a substantial period of time could be involved if it becomes necessary to file a lawsuit and proceed to trial.

We also tell our clients that the amount of time will be influenced by such factors as (a) how long it will take the injuries to stabilize so that a proper evaluation of damages can be made, and (b) the forum (court vs. arbitration, mediation or other ADR, and venue) in which the action is maintained.
