Maximum of the cases do not go to the court but in your case, if it goes there it will take a longer time than the others. Sometimes this timeline depends on the duration of your medical treatment. Because we cannot determine the total medical expenses until the medical treatments get completed and the patient comes home from the hospital. Due to this reason, some cases take a long time because a case cannot be closed if the medical treatment is going on hence this issue has a direct impact on the timeline. Some other factors can increase the duration of a case such as if the insurance company does not cooperate, in case of large medical bills negotiation time takes longer but we will do our best to rest the case as early as possible.
