How long will my personal injury case take?

Advice from Reno, Nevada Law Firm Matt Dion & Associates

If you’re considering a personal injury claim after an accident, you’re probably wondering how long it might take to resolve your case. As with most legal issues, there’s no set timeline – resolution of an injury claim depends on many factors, including:

  • The extent of your injuries
  • The clarity around who was at fault
  • The defendant’s willingness to make a settlement offer
  • And your willingness to put up a fight if you feel that offer isn’t fair

After a minor accident where the claimant wasn’t hurt all that badly, and the other side admits fault, a personal injury claim might settle in just a few months. When there’s a serious dispute over key issues such as liability for the accident or severity of the injuries, a personal injury lawsuit can take years to wind its way through the court system and make it to trial.

If you’re thinking about making a personal injury claim, it’s only natural to wonder how long the process might take, but it is important to focus on getting a fair resolution not just a quick result.  As an experienced personal injury attorney, Matt Dion can help you understand the potential timeline for your injury case.
