NC Injury Attorneys Discuss the Rarity of Quick Medical Malpractice Settlements

Many clients who suffer serious injuries from medical negligence ask how long a case will take and if it's possible to obtain a quick medical malpractice settlement. The answer is that most medical malpractice/surgical error cases take over a year to be resolved and a quick resolution is an exception to the rule. Why? There are multiple factors, but two prominent factors include the veto clause that doctors possess when determining whether to settle  case and the fact that settlements are recorded in a national data bank available to all hospitals.
