The length of time if takes to settle a slip & fall accident claim depends on various factors including:
1.) How long it will take you to recover your health
It is best to settle a case when the injured victim has recovered fully from their injuries. This approach ensures that there is no risk of settling for less than the actual value of the losses sustained by the victim. Therefore, if you take longer to recover, your case is likely to take longer to settle.
2.) The factors surrounding your case
Slip and fall cases may seem simple but they are often quite complicated. If your case includes complexities such as comparative negligence, liability disputes, catastrophic injuries, or even multiple defendants, your case is likely to take even longer.
3.) Whether your case goes to trial or ends with a settlement
Most slip and fall cases end with an out-of-court settlement. However, if a reasonable settlement cannot be reached in the settlement stages, your case may go to trial to be decided by a judge and jury. The trial process is often longer. It can take anywhere from several months or more to obtain a verdict especially if the court is busy with many other cases.
Every case is unique. We at Cianchetta & Associates understand the pressure that slip and fall victims are under following their accidents. We will work to resolve your case as quickly as possible without compromising on quality and seeking maximum compensation.
