It depends. Generally, lawsuits take anywhere from 1-2 years however there are occasions where the claim is resolved sooner than 1 year, and situations where the case takes longer than 2 years. Your lawyer should try to expedite your case as quickly as possible without sacrificing the true value of your case by trying to “settle” too soon. If you have questions about how long your case is taking, you should always reach out to your lawyer and talk to him/her so you can get a full understanding of the status of your case.
