It’s difficult to say since all cases are different. While most personal injury cases eventually settle, some do not and a trial is necessary. For cases involving serious injuries like broken bones or severe neck or back injuries that require surgery, it can take several months or a year to resolve your case. You should stay away from lawyers who only seek a quick and easy settlement for you. Serious injuries deserve more attention and usually result in larger recoveries. Your case should not be settled until your injuries have been fully identified, you have been released from medical treatment and your economic damages have been fully accounted for. Our Dallas car accident attorneys offers a free consultation, and if we accept your case, you pay no fees unless we obtain a recovery for you.
