How long does it take to settle a personal injury case?

1 Answers. Asked on Apr 06th, 2013 on Personal Injury - New York
More details to this question:
I had a traumatic brain injury and a surgery after that, due to a serious motor vehicle accident. Almost two years, and all of a sudden my lawyer asked me to sign a affidavit to file a motion against the dismissal. This arouse my suspicion I checked the court records website and found that my case is having a post judgment date in the coming week. does it mean, my lawyer had an out of court settlement, and I am going to be denied any judgment? I had no court appearance or deposition.

Are you sure that it is post judgment and not a motion by the defendants for summary judgment. A motion for summary judgment is a motion made by a defendant requesting dismissal of your case claiming that  there is no material  question of fact that the defendant is not liable

Have you been injured in accident that was someone else's fault? Has a doctor's mistake caused long-term health issues? Have you been hurt by a defective product? Under state personal injury laws, you may be entitled to compensation if you are hurt as a result of another person or company's negligent, reckless or deliberate actions. Personal injury lawyers work with the victims of all kinds of accidents, including auto accidents, motorcycle crashes, truck crashes, boating accidents, plane crashes, workplace injuries and railroad accidents. You should also hire a personal injury attorney if you've been injured as a result of dental or medical malpractice, a defective product, nursing home abuse, a slip and fall accident on someone else's property or a dog bite. Your personal injury law firm can help you collect money to pay for medical expenses, temporary or permanent disability, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other injury-related expenses.
