How Long Will My Case Take?
In today's post we ask a Portland Personal Injury Attorney, "How long will my case take?". When you've been injured and need compensation this is an important question. Unfortunately there is no simple answer. You could settle your case today for pennies on the dollar, or fight for every potential penny years into the future. Likely you want to find a fair balance, and that is part of what a personal injury lawyer helps with. It could take a few months to a few years depending on certain circumstances, and there is simply no way to know exactly how long your particular case may take. At Johnson Law, we will work to move the case along as fast as possible, but we will also make sure that you get what’s fair.

How Long Will The Insurance Company Use Delay Tactics?
In most cases insurance companies would be happy to answer "How Long Will My Case Take?" with "Immediately! If you accept our settlement offer". One of the reasons cases can take so long is because the insurance adjuster will try to stall and delay, making you wait to get the money you need. They know that you are hurt and they hope that by moving as slowly as possible, you will get desperate and settle for less than you deserve. If you are missing work and have medical bills piling up, it may be tempting to settle. However, it is important to remember that any settlement will need to cover you injuries for the rest of your life – once a case has settled, there is no going back and re-opening the case.
By working with an experienced lawyer, you can be sure that these delay tactics are being countered and that your case is being given the attention it deserves. While we cannot guarantee the exact length of your case, we can guarantee that we will do everything in our power to resolve it as quickly as possible for the amount you deserve.
How Long Will Injury Diagnosis and Treatment Take?

The time it takes to diagnose and treat your injury can heavily impact the length of your case.
