Question:

How long will a wrongful death case take?

Answer:

I was asked by a client the other day how long their wrongful death claim would take. I advised this client that there are multiple factors that go into how long it lasts, and one of those is how strong the case is. Wrongful Death Settlement Timeline If the case has a lot of strength to it and the other side recognizes that, then they’re much more likely to come to the table with a reasonable offer up front. If they don’t recognize that or if the case is not strong, then they might be more likely to fight the case. If they do that, then that ends up making the case drag out longer and potentially going into suit.

Another factor that can determine how long a case lasts is if you have a trial firm retained. Again, if the other side recognizes that you have a respected trial firm representing you, then they might be more likely to come to the table up front with a reasonable, acceptable offer that fairly compensates you for your wrongful death claim.
