How Long Does a Medical Malpractice Case Take?
It is impossible to predict exactly how long any one particular medical malpractice case will take to finish. All cases are different and it depends on how complex the case is.
A typical range that it takes to complete a medical malpractice case is between two to four years. They are some of the most lengthy and complicated legal proceedings that there are.
The clients of Cirignani, Heller & Harman, LLP have the unique advantage of having attorneys working on the case who are both experienced trial lawyers and experienced medical professionals. This can typically cut down the amount of time it takes to complete the case. With rare exception, medical malpractice cases typically require filing a lawsuit and going to court. During the process, our goal is to get the case in such a position that the defendants will negotiate a settlement. However, that is not always the case and we are always prepared to go all the way and take the case to trial for our clients.
Our clients are essentially victims of the medical system and we want to make sure that they get justice in the legal system.
