Common Questions About Personal Injuries in St. Petersburg, FL
- Do All Personal Injury Cases Have to Be Litigated?
- Not every case goes into litigation. In fact a large number of cases can be settled without ever having to have a complaint filed. If you think about it it’s just another step along the journey in your lawsuit. If we can resolve it without going to the court system, that’s when the complaint actually gets filed. There’s no exact time frame or way to calculate how long it’s going to take for your case to finish. As a rule of thumb, we try to get all cases tried within 18 t0 24 months. That’s a hard goal to reach because there are outside factors that can come in. If anybody gets sick, if you have an additional surgery or sometimes we even have people who have passed away throughout the course of it. So the rule of thumb is we try to get your case to a jury between 18 and 24 months, but sometimes it can take longer.
- Can You Still Settle A Case if It Moves to Litigation?
- It’s always a client’s decision when they would like to have a case settled. Just because the lawsuit gets filed that does mean you have to go to trial. Throughout the process there are informal discussions that occur. There is what is called mediation and there are what are called proposals for settlement. You shouldn’t have the mindset that just because the complaint gets filed with the court that the settlement discussions stop.
- What Is The Worth Of My Personal Injury Case?
- There is no definite way to determine this without actually filing a claim. It varies based on several factors such as cost of medical treatment, cost of lost wages, and others. It also depends on the level of severity with the higher severity cases having higher worth.
