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?
