I slipped in a supermarket ended up having a sprained knee was in an leg imbolizet 6amd half weeks went to phicalal therapy and it's going on fourteen months how much longer do I have to wait
Slip and fall cases are not easy and any case can take years to resolve if litigation is necessary. I'm sure your attorney is anxious to resolve it too but until and unless you and the defendant agree on settlement terms or the matter is adjudicated the case will remain open. Your attorney can't resolve it unilaterally. However, you should feel free to contact your attorney to see what the status of your claim is.
If you're only 14 months in, you may be waiting a long time. Your case could always settle, but that would require the defendants making a reasonable offer. I'm sure your attorney can explain the process to you if you call and ask your questions. It is impossible to speculate how long it will take. If it doesn't settle and goes all the way to trial, it will most likely be years.
