In this episode, your hosts Earl Schurmer and Lauren Wood answer the commonly asked question: “When can I expect a settlement in my personal injury case?” The short answer is that it depends on a lot of different factors, and no two cases are alike. The time in which a personal injury case gets settled is based on whether or not there is a dispute on liability, how long the injured person needs medical care and treatment, the severity and complexity of the injuries, who the at-fault party’s insurance company is, calculating any claims for past or future damages, and even the attorney on the other side. Listeners can gain a better understanding of the various factors that affect how long it can take to get a case settled.
