How long does it take to resolve a medical malpractice case?
Every medical malpractice case has its own unique set of facts and complications. Once a medical malpractice case is filed, it can take two to four years to resolve because few are settled out of court. For that reason, most claims must be put into suit requiring the hiring of medical expert witnesses to prove the alleged negligence. Only after months, and perhaps years, of intense litigation will a malpractice insurance company even consider making an out-of-court settlement offer.
If the lawyer defending the heath care provider’s insurance company believes the plaintiff may prevail, the insurance company will try to settle. A skilled NJ medical malpractice attorney will prepare a malpractice case carefully, knowing that having a firm command of the facts will allow negotiation from a position of strength.
If you believe that you or a family member was harmed through medical negligence, it’s important to consult a knowledgeable and experienced NJ medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible.
