Tampa Personal Injury Attorney Discusses Timeframe for Getting Money from a Claim
I don’t know if there’s any reasonable timeframe. There are a number of factors that can affect the length of your lawsuit. The strength of liability, if the other side accepts liability, that’s a factor that can cause your lawsuit or your claim to take less time. If your injuries are severe and it takes you longer to recover, that’s going to affect the time period within which your claim can be resolved. Also, a number of factors in the lawsuit itself depending on what happens during the litigation. We have a Supreme Court guideline where the Supreme Court set up a timetable that they would like for cases to be resolved in once lawsuit is filed. That’s 18 months, but the dockets are way more backed up than that, so very few cases can be resolved in 18 months to 2 years from the time that the litigation begins.
- There is no reasonable timeframe for when you will receive your money
- There are so many factors that can affect the length of your case that it’s tough to come up with a specific amount of time for your trial length
