Question:

How long will my car accident case take?

Answer:

Often clients ask me, “How long is it going to take?” It’s a complicated answer. If the injury is significant, it could take quite a long time. If there are issues regarding liability, if both sides are pointing fingers at each other, that stuff sometimes has to be ironed out in court.Car Accident Settlement TimelineThat means litigation. Cases that don’t require litigation can be settled optimistically within six months to a year. Cases that require litigation can require longer. It’s not unusual or unheard of for a case to take three, four, even five years in New York.
