Here are the factors that can impact how long a personal injury claim takes.

Factors That Impact How Long A Personal Injury Lawsuit Takes

How long a personal injury claim takes can be impacted by the following factors: 

  • The type of injury you have and how serious it is
  • What compensation you are seeking 
  • How difficult or easy it is to establish evidence and/or proof for your claim 
  • Whether further assessment of the degree of impairment caused as a result of the injury is required and the assessment process taken (or whether the requirement for an assessment of the degree of impairment can be waived)
  • Whether the other party accepts the assessment or refers a medical question about the assessment to a medical panel for determination (and if the panel can determine the medical question)
  • If the court deems that matters regarding a significant injury are urgent because of the imminent death of the plaintiff

There may be other factors that can have an impact on how long a personal injury lawsuit takes too.

Our team is meticulous when it comes to leaving no stone unturned to ensure a smooth and timely process.
