How long do I have to wait for my settlement been waiting since 2008

April 4, 2019


I broke my ankle in 2008 I have pins and a plate in my ankle path mark still haven't settled my case what can I do


You need to talk to your lawyer (assuming you have one). If your accident happened in 2008 and your case wasn't filed until years later, that would explain some of the wait. Maybe you were a minor at the time and you've only just turned 18. Maybe the case is under appeal; there is often more than one defendant in a case and maybe they have a dispute between themselves; maybe an insurance company is refusing to provide coverage. Maybe one of the parties is in bankruptcy. Who knows? Your own lawyer knows! - ask them.
