Question:

How long is it going to take to resolve my slip and fall accident injury claim in Idaho?

Answer:

Slip and Fall Case Timeline How long does it typically take to resolve a slip and fall claim in Idaho? We can’t give you a definite answer on this question because we’ve represented lots of people in different kinds of fall cases. “It depends” is the answer. If a case is really solid, like the case we had in which a client fell on a run over a tethered line that was put across a sidewalk by a contractor and broke both wrists, then you might expect an earlier resolution.

In a case, though, where someone might have a traumatic brain injury or some injury that isn’t resolved and we need to wait and see, things can take time. We’re not going to resolve a case unless we know what their medical situation is at the end because some people do have permanent injuries. We need to know what that permanent injury is. Some people get better six months after their fall. We need to wait until that six months is up and to determine what we think the case is valued at.

The easy answer is that it depends, but it can take anywhere from say six months to say a couple of years because maybe you end up going through a trial to prove your case. The easy answer, the most obvious answer, is it can take any amount of time to resolve a slip-and-fall case.
