One of the most frequently asked questions the Mann, Wyatt & Tanksley Midwest Personal Injury Firm gets asked is, “How long will my car accident process take?” The question arises due to the fact that thousands are injured on the roadways each year, including in our Joplin, Missouri, area.
Mike Wyatt, founding partner at Mann, Wyatt & Tanksley, says that how long your personal injury legal process will take depends entirely on the specifics of your case. However, below are a few scenarios and timelines to consider:
- If you are still being treated medically, that treatment process will determine how long your car accident case will take.
- If your treatment is complete and the case is being settled rather than going to a trial, it’s often possible to resolve your car accident case in 30-90 days. The average case takes three to six months, however.
- “If we go to litigation, that’s when it’s possible that your case can take months and even more than a year when a jury is involved,” said Wyatt. “It’s very unlikely, but there are cases that go to a jury trial, through the appeal process and back to a trial process. Such cases can take years.”
