How long will my medical malpractice case take?
When we have clients see us who have been victims of medical malpractice, one of the first things they always want to know is how long will it take to resolve their claim. Medical malpractice claims generally take a long time to resolve because they are heavily fact-intensive and take a lot of investigation and reliance on expert witnesses to resolve. The medical field fights hard against medical malpractice claims. The insurance carriers of the responsible parties make it very difficult to resolve these claims.
Medical malpractice claims are very rarely resolved before filing a lawsuit. Once a lawsuit is filed, we have to go through the process of discovery, which is where we gather all the information that supports our case and allows us to make a claim that the medical professional has violated the standard of care and that violation injured our client. These types of cases can easily take two to five years to resolve. Often, they have to be tried to a jury.
