If a car hits you as a pedestrian in Ventura and you’re injured, you may be wondering how long it is going to take to resolve your case. It is something that really depends on a number of factors. Here is what we look at:

-How badly were you hurt?
-How long is it going to take you to get all of your medical treatment before you get better?
-What extent of your injuries are permanent and you’re going to have for the rest of your life?
-What amount of medical care and treatment is going to be required in your future?

Depending on the extent and nature of your injuries, it could take anywhere from six months to a year or if a lawsuit is required it could take a number of years. You have two years under the statute of limitation to file your lawsuit and it may be a year or two after that before your case comes to trial and it’s finally resolved. This is something that is really dependent on the facts of each and every case. There is no cookie cutter answer where we can say, if you have a car-pedestrian accident here in Ventura, it’s going to be over in 6 months. It really depends on the facts.

What you need to do early on is contact an attorney who handles these cases on a regular basis so that we can begin our investigation from the start and build a solid foundation for your case. Make sure that you get all of the care and treatment that you need and require and that you are able to fully recover from all of your injuries, and if not, we know what those injuries are going into the future so that we can protect all of your interests.
