Will my personal injury case settle quickly, and when will I be compensated in Ohio?

Not all personal injury cases conclude quickly. The reality is that your case could settle in a few months or take much longer to resolve. Each situation is unique, and handling a personal injury case includes many steps your lawyer must follow to consider, evaluate, settle or litigate your claim properly. It is also difficult to know how the defendant will react to your lawsuit. An insurance company will likely step in to defend the person you sue.

Insurance companies evaluate many cases and represent defendants and people who bring claims. An insurance company’s claims adjustor, legal counsel, or law firm may approach each case differently. How quickly your case moves through the legal process to a conclusion depends on several factors, including the person handling your case and the specific facts involved. If you incur additional injuries after the original filing and need further medical treatment and evaluation, a conclusion might take longer to reach. Because personal injuries are so complex and often have unforeseen effects, it is usually unwise to try and settle quickly.
