Unfortunately, there is not a set amount of time that a nursing home abuse claim will take before it is settled. The amount of time that your nursing home abuse case will take is dependent upon the specific characteristics of your case. If your case is more complicated and involves more severe injuries, then it is likely that it will take a longer amount of time to settle. If your loved one is still receiving medical treatment for their injuries, then the settlement process cannot begin. Once they are done receiving treatment, then your nursing home abuse will start to be settled.
