How Long Would It Be Before I Get Money From My Case in New Jersey?
Most folks are interested in how long it will take before they receive the proceeds of their accident case. This is a very difficult, if not impossible, question to answer from the onset. And the reason for that is it’s largely determined by the extent of medical treatment that you need. If you require surgical intervention and your case is settled before you get that surgery, we’re doing you a disservice. You cannot come back to court and say, “Well, now I’ve had surgical intervention. My injury’s more severe than I suspected it was. I’d like to re-open my case.” Once your case is closed, your case is closed. So we wait until your medical treatment is concluded before we seriously talk about settling your case. Now, this could be sometimes as little as three months. Sometimes it can take three or four years depending again on the medical intervention necessary.
