What is my case worth?
It depends. There are a variety of factors that can affect the value of your case. If you may have been partially at fault in causing injury event, it could reduce your recovery by the percentage of fault attributed to you. Other factors include the nature and extent of your injuries, your diagnosis and prognosis, whether your injuries are temporary or permanent, whether your need medical treatment in the future, whether you are unable to work or need to be retrained.
How long will my case take?
It depends. You should count on anywhere from between 6 months to 4 years. But, it really depends on the nature and extent of your injuries. Once a settlement is reached, you will be required to sign a release and waiver of any and all claims. So, it's important that you don't resolve your claim before you have fully recovered.
