A: Lawsuits involving wrongful death can take anywhere from months to years for settlement. Settlement may never even come and a trial may be necessary. Speak to your attorney regarding a time frame for your specific case.

A: Depends on the nature of the case. Much depends on who is at fault and to what degree, the nature of the claims, and what insurance there is.
