How long will a medical malpractice case take?

Unfortunately, there is simply no way to answer this question. Some medical malpractice cases settle prior to trial, and some even settle prior to the filing of a lawsuit. Many, however, do not. When this happens, it can take several years to litigate a case to trial. Occasionally, there may be a need to appeal the results of the trial, thus extending the time required to resolve the case. One should understand from the start that it may take years for a medical malpractice case to reach final resolution.
