A: The amount of time necessary to resolve a car or truck accident case in Pennsylvania varies greatly from case to case, literally ranging from a few weeks to a few years.  The reasons why one case might take longer than another include the complexity of the issues in the case, the degree of injury relative to the available insurance coverage or the time it takes to fully appreciate the impact some injuries have on your life and the lives of your spouse and children.  If you ask a lawyer about how long your case should take, you shouldn't get an answer that defines the time in months and you certainly shouldn't get any guarantees.  But a lawyer ought to be able to tell whether your case is likely to be one that can be quickly resolved or is more likely to be one that will take more time (and, of course, the lawyer should explain why).
