Each case is unique, and depends on a variety of factors. If your injury heals rather quickly, and you return to work quickly, that case can be completed start to finish in several months. However, if your injuries are more severe, it will take longer for the injuries to heal. Smart personal injury lawyers and dog bite attorneys will not settle your case until after you have healed from your injuries. This is because your attorney needs to know the full extent of your injuries before your case is settled. That way your attorney will know the full amount of your medical bills, time missed from work, affect on your life, and whether or not future medical care will be needed. If your injuries resulted in severe wounds that turn into scars, it can take six to nine months before we can send you to a plastic surgeon to evaluate the extent of permanent scars, and the cost of scar revision. For all of these reasons, there is no fixed time limit for how long your case might take. However, the Law Office of Adam Sorrells understands that nobody wants a lengthy legal case, if it can be helped. Our goes is always to get you the best possible settlement, in the shortest time possible.
