Question:

How long will my medical malpractice case take?

Answer:

Medical Malpractice Settlement Timeline

Recently, a new client reached out and asked how long his medical malpractice case would take. Here in Orlando, there are numerous factors that go into how long a case can take. One of those is the significance of the injuries. The second is the pre-suit process that is required here in Florida, specifically with respect to medical malpractice lawsuits. They require that you go through this process and that you actually retain experts who will execute an affidavit indicating that medical malpractice has occurred before you can even get to the point of filing a lawsuit. Then, once you file a lawsuit, it could be 18 months to 24 months before the matter is resolved if it requires going to a jury trial.

It is because of this that it is extremely important that you hire a knowledgeable, educated trial lawyer who understands medical malpractice claims. If you or a family member has been injured due to medical malpractice, please contact us. We’re here to help.
