How long does it take for a dog bite case to get to/go through court?

It is difficult to provide an absolute timeline for dog bite case, or any other case for that matter, because we need to be able to evaluate the damages prior to trying to attempt any settlement or court appearance. This usually does not happen until the victim reaches maximum medical improvement, which means they are as good as they are going to get or fully recovered. At that point we look at what the victim’s needs for the future are to determine possible medical expenses. Reaching that point may take a long time, as it is dependent on how fast and well the victim heals.
