Question:

How long will it take to resolve my bus accident case?

Answer:

A client the other day asked how long it’s going to take to resolve the bus accident case that she has in Orlando. We explained to her that that depends on several different factors. Her accident had just occurred, so it was going to take some time to fully understand the extent of her injuries, including how much medical treatment she was going to need, if she was going to need ongoing medical treatment in the future and if she was going to need surgery. We explained to her that until we had a good understanding of the nature of her injuries and the extent of her injuries, it was going to be difficult to tell her how long her case would take to resolve.

If they were fair and reasonable with her, we would be able to get a settlement with her out of court. Unfortunately, most of the time, that’s not something that we’re able to do in bus accident cases, so oftentimes we have to file a lawsuit. Again, within the litigation process and once we file a lawsuit, it just depends how fair the other side is going to be and if that case is going to have to go to a jury trial. We were able to tell her that from when we file suit until we can usually get her case to a jury trial is oftentimes about a year and a half.
