One of the more difficult questions our clients ask us is, “How long will my case take?” This question is difficult because every case is unique and a large number of factors play into how long a case will take, from the malpractice insurance company’s willingness to settle to the number of defendants involved to the place where the lawsuit is filed.
The sad truth is that in Illinois most medical malpractice cases take three to five years to resolve, though some of the more straightforward cases can settle more quickly. Yet, even in the most complex cases, having an experienced attorney on your side can go a long way in speeding up your case and getting you compensation for your injuries.
At Cirignani Heller & Harman, in Chicago, Illinois, we will work hard to move your case along as quickly as possible and will negotiate for a strong settlement offer wherever possible. When that is not possible, however, our trial-tested courtroom lawyers are prepared to take your case to court. In either case, you will not pay us a penny in attorney fees until and unless we recover compensation for you.
