How long will my personal injury lawsuit take?

All cases are unique and therefore it is difficult to say exactly how long your personal injury lawsuit will take. That is why it is important to meet with us for an evaluation. Some cases can be settled, without going to court, in a matter of months. Others can take years to settle.

The duration of your case will be based on when a settlement is reached. Many claims are settled before a lawsuit is filed. At the Law Offices of Dussault & Gomes we will negotiate with the insurance company representing the other party and attempt a settlement. Once an offer is made, you can accept or reject it.

If the case goes to trial, the process begins with the complaint and answer phase, followed by the discovery phase, and the motions phase. During this time we will work tirelessly to get you the settlement you deserve. Contact D&G today to determine how long your case may last.
