How long will my pedestrian accident case take to resolve?
We’re often asked, “How long is it going to take for my case to resolve after I’ve been injured as a pedestrian in Orlando?” Unfortunately, there is no exact answer to that question. All we can do is give our clients some guidance based upon what we’ve seen. Every case is unique, and every case is different. Sometimes, although not very frequently, cases will settle very quickly. In those situations, it depends on how fair the insurance company is being, how much insurance coverage the at-fault person has, and what the extent of the injuries are. Other factors that go into the length of time are how much treatment our client needs and how serious their injuries are. Did they end up having to have surgery and go through rehabilitation?
It just depends. Every case is unique, every case is different. Of course, we try to settle all cases before filing a lawsuit, but sometimes those cases can’t be settled. If we have to go into the litigation process, things take longer. On average, from when a case is filed until it’s presented to a jury in Orlando, and if things are moving normally and smoothly, it’s about a year and a half. Before that, there will be a court-ordered mediation conference, during which a lot of cases settle.
There’s no exact answer to that question or exact science. If you have been involved in a pedestrian accident case and need a lawyer, please contact us. We’d be happy to help you.
