We wish there was an easy answer to this question, but unfortunately each case depends on the nature of the case and your personal injuries. We take personal injury lawsuits on a contingency fee basis—as such, we only get paid when you get paid. It is in everyone’s interest to push our cases forward and get you as much money as we can as quickly as possible. Despite wanting to get you paid quickly, once you settle a case, you will not be able to go back and ask for additional compensation if you discover new injuries or if things are worse than expected.
This is why the personal injury lawyers at Stilwell Law Firm in Houston, Texas will work closely with you, your doctor, and our own experts to evaluate your case. We will make sure we have all available facts and that we fully understand future medical expenses, pain and suffering, and all other factors that impact your claim before settling. Once we have everything we need, we will be able to advise you on how long it will take to either settle or try your case.
