Factors that could make a case more complex:
The time that it takes from obtaining your initial instructions to the final resolution of your matter depends largely on the stage at which your case is resolved. If a settlement is reached during pre-claim conciliation, your case is likely to take 1-16 weeks. If your claim proceeds to a Final Hearing, your case is likely to take up to 9 months. This is just an estimate and we will of course be able to give you a more accurate timescale once we have more information and as the matter progresses.
