The wheels of justice are sure, but they are also slow. It can take months or even years before an accident case is fully resolved. Many factors play into this. An example in a criminal accident case was shown by WSB TV.
An off-duty APD officer was allegedly involved in a drag racing crash last year. He sustained severe injuries and his passenger was killed. He’s been charged with vehicular homicide, but he is still on the job. Why? The warrant papers haven’t been served yet from the Georgia Highway Patrol to the officer, who remains off of active duty due to the severity of his injuries.
In personal injury cases too, delays can build up. A lawyer will try to do everything in their power to speed the process up, but there are many things beyond their control. One of the ways that people rack up huge lawyer bills is from constantly calling their lawyer asking for updates. A skilled lawyer will outline the whole process and make an agreement to contact their clients at agreed intervals, say every two weeks or so or when there is a major update.
