The time it takes to settle depends on whether the case goes to trial. A pre-trial is held to discover as much evidence as possible about the accident. Often, the opposing parties can reach a settlement here and avoid a trial.
The case will go to trial if a settlement is off the table. Reaching a judgment in a slip and fall injury case can take as little as a day or as long as months.
Much depends on whether the losing party files an appeal. Each time an appeal is filed, the clock is more or less reset, and deliberations begin again.
