Naturally, when we meet with clients for the first time or potential clients, one of their questions that always comes up and we like to address it from the outset is, “How long will this take? How long will my case take?” Unfortunately, the only answer I can offer you is, “We don’t know, but it’s going to take a while.” We encourage and we really stress this with our clients. You cannot let the lawsuit take over your life. We will take that for you. We will shoulder that burden for you. You cannot let this run your life because it will consume you and you will be devastated by it. The only thing you need to worry about is getting better.
When a client comes and says, “How long will this take,” the best guess I can give them is 9 to 12 months. Other than that, it’s going to be a long hall, but they shouldn’t have to worry about it. You, as a potential client. If you’re looking for representation, you’ve been injured; you shouldn’t have to worry about how long it’s going to take. That’s our job. That’s for us work on. All you have to worry about is you. The process is long. There’s a whole host of issues that goes into it. Number one is your care. You need to make sure that you’re 100 percent cured, that you’re back to us as good as you’re going to get because you only get one bite at the apple. If you decide to settle the case the day afterwards and something pops up a week later, you can’t go back and get recovery for it.
Our job is to make sure we’ve uncovered all the injuries that you have as a result of the accident and then to seek the full and final amount recovery for you. If you have any questions about how long case is going to take and then attorney tells you it’s going to take all 30 days, they’re probably not telling you the truth. It takes a long time. Call us. Come speak to us. We’ll sit down with you. We’ll go over your entire case. Let you know what we think. We’ll let you know how long we think it’s going to take. They got to tell you. It’s probably going to be closer to a year than you think.
