The average time for a legal malpractice case from beginning to end varies from city to city and state to state, and usually ranges from one to six years. In most places, the average is probably two to three years.
Rarely, a case can be settled in a few weeks or months. On occasion, a case could last a decade or more, including appeals. Ask your lawyer what the average length of time is for a malpractice case in your area.
No lawyer can promise you how long your specific case will take because, because it is impossible to predict how the defendants will respond or whether there will be one or more appeals.
Florida has a special law stating judges may speed up the case of a party who is over the age of sixty-five, taking into consideration the party’s age and specific medical condition.
