How long will my case take?
There is no set time period. Typically, your case will not be settled or brought to trial until you have reached maximum medical improvement, or MMI.

How much is my case worth?

What are compensatory damages?

What are punitive damages?
Punitive damages are damages exceeding simple compensation that are awarded to deter the harmful conduct and punish the defendant.
How long do I have to file suit?
Typically, you have one year from the accident or injury to file suit. In some cases, where the injury or harm goes unknown until many years later, you have one year from when you knew or should have known that an injury or harm occurred. Missing the deadline to file your lawsuit can cause you to lose your legal right to sue. It is important that you contact an attorney as soon as possible, so you can protect your rights.
