How long will my case take?
The length of time a Georgia malpractice case might take from beginning to end varies from county to county around the state. Even in the same county, the length could very depending on which judge is assigned to the case. In most places the average is probably two to three years, but many factors can change this. A rare case can be settled in a few weeks or months. On occasion, a case could last a decade or more including appeals. If there are multiple defendants in your case, the case will likely take longer because there are more lawyers involved and more expert witnesses. No lawyer can promise you how long your specific case will take because your lawyer cannot predict how the defendants will respond or whether there will be one or more appeals. Your lawyer also cannot control the calendar of the judge, and the judge’s scheduling of your trial is the most important factor of all.
