The Length of Your Case Depends on the Severity of Your Injury and the Physical Demands of Your Job.
Your case should take as long as necessary to get you all of the benefits and medical treatment you need for your work injury, and for you to get back to health. Unfortunately, you can't speed this up or slow this down, it just depends on your recovery, medical treatment and the extent of your injuries. Permanent injuries will take longer, of course, because we want to make sure we can get you everything you need to take care of yourself and your family now and in the long run.
Every day we do what's best for people in their specific situation. So you can expect a thorough and specific plan to get you and your family what you need.
Sometimes that's a settlement for a minor injury that comes relatively quickly and allows you to put that money to good use. Other times, it's making sure you have ongoing medical care in the future should you need it. Sometimes it's transitioning to a new light duty career.
Whatever will work best for you and your family is what we'll advise you to do. We're going to make sure that it gets done whether it takes a couple of months or a couple of years.
