How long will my medical malpractice case take?
When I’m asked the question, “How long will it take to resolve a medical malpractice case in Florida?” what I tell my clients is that every case is different and it takes a long time, especially with a medical malpractice case because typically they are vigorously defended by the other side. What’s really important is we don’t want to shortchange a client’s case by trying to settle it too quickly. A lawyer has the responsibility of getting together all of the evidence and ultimately proving the case, so it’s very important that we take our time and we do it the correct way, and we equip ourselves to present the case thoroughly at trial.
It can be frustrating for a client if a case takes too long, but on the other hand, it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to prosecute a case. Once a case is settled or determined at a jury verdict, we can’t go back years later and say things are worse than we even thought, so now we want more compensation. It’s just not possible. The most important thing is that you hire an established, experienced trial attorney who can help you navigate the difficulties and the intricacies of your medical malpractice case.
