Every case has its own time frame. Where possible, we do not explore settlement until you and your physicians feel that you are finished healing from your injuries. Once you have reached “maximum medical improvement” – that is, as good as you are going to get, our firm will make the appropriate settlement demand. In catastrophic cases, our settlement demands will contemplate future medical care. Nevertheless, some cases settle before a lawsuit is filed and others can take two or more years before being resolved.
