FAQ: How Long Will My Springfield, Missouri, Personal Injury Lawsuit Take?

For those who have suffered a personal injury, there is often a significant amount of pain. Additionally, their work and even personal lives may be affected. If you are experiencing such a situation, you no doubt hope all aspects of your life return to normal as soon as possible. But perhaps you wonder, “How long will my personal injury lawsuit take?”

Unfortunately, there is no easy answer to this question. “[How long the case takes] really depends on the facts of the case,” said Personal Injury Attorney Jesse Tanksley of the Mann, Wyatt & Tanksley Midwest Personal Injury Firm in Springfield, Missouri.

Tanksley said your personal injury case should not be resolved if you do not have a good diagnosis or are still unsure of future medical care that will be needed. For example, if you have suffered a back injury and resolve your case quickly, future medical care years down the road, such as a back surgery, will not be covered.
