Clients sometimes ask how long their case will take.
The most important reason for this is that it’s your only chance. If a case is settled too early, you can’t go back to court and ask for more money because he need surgery or you ended up not getting better.
A careful personal injury lawyer needs to evaluate the case, and make sure that the client has reached maximum medical improvement, that means they’re as good as they’re going to get. Or they need to hire the right experts to plan out what healthcare the client is going to need in the future, so they can include that in the claim.
All of this takes time, and that is the main reason why lawsuits last longer than most people expect.
