Re: How Long Do Lawyers Work on Cases Before Filing for a Lawsuit?
There is no standard anything.
but is there a standard process all personal injury lawyers choose/or must perform before filing a lawsuit?
What often happens, if there is a physical injury, is the lawyer often waits until nearly the statute of limitations has run so they have the most accurate accounting of damages and the most complete information regarding the eventual outcome of the injuries.
An attorney could be hired the day of an injury and a suit may not be filed for several years or inversely, the attorney could be hired the day he files suit.
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
