This is not a question asked just by people who have a premise liability claim. It is a question asked by everyone who has been injured. The more serious the injury, the more often the question is asked. This is most likely due to the fact that serious injuries lead to more catastrophic costs and expenses for people. When people cannot work they need income to replace lost income. Sometimes, the insurance companies know this so they attempt to play the delay game. Delay the case and if the attorney for the injured person is not aggressive, the insurance companies hope they will settle their case for less. It is up to the attorney to prosecute the case as quickly as possible.
At Coxwell & Associates, we practice aggressive prosecution of cases for our clients when they have been injured. Of course, clients must understand that the legal system is at times slow. For example, if you are waiting on the client to reach maximum medical recovery and be released by the doctor, there is only so much you can do until the client is released. Other times you might be waiting for the test results from experts. There are 100 things that might cause a delay in a case that is beyond the control of the injured person’s attorney. Irrespective of these delays, a good personal injury attorney is going to be well-known by the insurance lawyers. We have had difficult cases resolved quickly, sometimes before a deposition is taken, and other cases that end up going to trial.
Let’s turn our attention now to premise liability cases. If you were hurt on someone else’s property and you intend to file a premises liability claim, you may be wondering how long it will take to resolve the case. After all, the damages are probably adding up fast. While there’s no set timeline for resolving such cases, a seasoned personal injury attorney can give you an idea of what to expect after evaluating the circumstances. By applying experience, relevant statutes, and applicable precedents, your lawyer can predict how long the proceedings might last.
