Settlements may sometimes take many months, even up to and over one year. Ask your attorney for a timeline, or at least to keep you informed of the updates on the negotiations.
Every case is different. Some cases settle right away. Other cases settle late in the litigation process, including on the eve of trial. Yet other cases never settle and proceed to trial. Whether and when a case settles depends on many factors, such as the facts of the case, reasonableness of the parties, the perspective of the parties, and procedureal and substative posture of the case. Your lawyer is in the best position to apprise you of your situation.
