The litigation process takes that time, particularly if the plaintiff is still recovering. It’s important not to rush to sign any financial settlement until you have a clear understanding of how the accident will impact your health and earning potential long term.
At Pefanis Horvath, we start working with our clients immediately upon being retained. We file all necessary paperwork, initiate communications with other parties, gather all medical records and we arrange and pay for any specialist assessments that can benefit your case. Oftentimes, our clients find that specialist assessments in the areas of vocational interests and aptitudes as well as psychological health are highly valuable and insightful in exploring education and career options post accident. We will continue to work to build your case while you recuperate and receive treatment. Once your medical care team is certain that your healing has reached a stable and maximum point of recovery, we will be in a position to calculate what your claim is worth and move the legal process forward with negotiations and, if necessary, trial.
