Personal Injury Lawyer serving Syracuse, NY area

Lawsuit Length of Time

How long will my personal injury case take?

It is very difficult to say. We have had cases settle in weeks. If the case is strong, sometimes insurance companies will want to settle the matter quickly. Likewise, if the case is particularly weak, sometimes it makes sense to settle the matter quickly.

However, once a case gets to the lawsuit phase, cases frequently take years to complete. Once a case is ready for trial, in upstate New York, you can expect to wait month until the trial due to court caseload congestion. Unfortunately the reality is that it is sometimes difficult to assess how long a case will take to reach its conclusion. If you contact the Snyder Law Firm, we will do what we can to advance your case and help you along the way.
