We can’t really answer this one without reviewing the details of a particular case. That being stated, however, some of the factors that may end up complicating personal injury lawsuits and, consequently, prolonging a resolution to these cases include (but are not necessarily limited to):
- More severe injuries (that may need to be established through expert witness testimony)
- More complicated claims of negligence (For instance, product liability and medical malpractice cases tend to be far more complicated than other types of personal injury lawsuits.)
- Corporate or government defendants (who tend to have legal teams ready to fight negligence allegations).
While you can easily get a more specific answer regarding your case by contacting Greenspun Shapiro, PC today, what you can take away from this is that you should generally expect personal injury lawsuits to take some time to resolve.
