Question:

How long does a wrongful death case last in Idaho?

Answer:

Wrongful Death Case Timeline It’s a natural concern we often hear from people: How long is my wrongful death claim going to last? How long does it take to get this resolved? The answer to that is a classic lawyer answer: it depends. In these types of cases, it depends on a lot of things.

It can depend on who caused the wrongful death. Who did the thing that was bad, the negligent act, or the dangerous product? Who the defendant is can impact the length of the case.

What’s the scope of the damages? Are the damages easily identified or are they harder to identify? What’s the nature of the behavior? Is it egregious behavior or is it behavior that’s merely somewhat negligent? Each one of those things can impact the length of time it takes to evaluate and move the case forward.

Is there an insurance company involved? That’s an important factor. Is it a case that has to go to trial or is it a case that can be resolved without having to file suit? That’s an important factor, as well.
