FAQ: Why is My Tulsa, Oklahoma, Personal Injury Case Taking So Long?


Are you in the Tulsa, Oklahoma, area and have you recently suffered a personal injury? If so, you may still be experiencing pain and other negative effects. People in similar situations have asked the Mann Wyatt Tanksley Injury Attorneys in Tulsa, “Why is my personal injury case taking so long?” Maybe you are currently wondering the same thing about your personal injury case.

“Every case is different,” said Tulsa personal injury Lawyer Scott Mann. There are two main factors that impact how long a personal injury case can take.

Factors Impacting How Long a Personal Injury Case Takes

How Soon a Tulsa Personal Injury Lawyer is Obtained

It is best to obtain a Tulsa personal injury lawyer as soon as you can following an injury. The more serious your injury, and therefore “valuable” your case, the more likely it is that the insurance company will resist paying you the compensation you deserve. The sooner a Tulsa personal injury attorney is obtained, the sooner you can get your case started and eventually resolved.

How Long Medical Care Will Take

According to Mann, people who have settled their cases before their medical care is completed often regret the decision. Settling a personal injury case too soon can mean less compensation than is needed.

“My common recommendation is to be patient,” said Mann. “Let’s complete your medical care so that we know the full picture, such as what your ultimate disability is going to be and how it will affect you in the future.”
