Delayed Claim Attorney in Southern California
Delayed Claim Lawyer in Southern California
While there is no hard and fast rule on how long is too long, the one thumb rule is of eight months. Courts will generally presume that the delay has been sufficient to satisfy a defendant’s prima facies case of the denial of the right to a speedy trial when eight months have passed.
The more complicated cases take longer to prepare for trial. The number of parties and issues involved also affect the length of litigation. Virtually all lawyers handle many cases at the same time and thus the schedules of the various lawyers involved play a role in the time it takes for a case to get to trial.
