If you started a nursing home case in pre-suit, you have a 75 day waiting period before you can file a lawsuit. In practicality, that 75 days often turns into 6 months by the agreement of the parties. Now you have a viable lawsuit filed in the court system in Florida, on the west and east coast of Florida the typical shelf life for a case that is filed, from the time it is filed until the time it gets to a jury trial is about two years. That’s not because of the nature of the cases, it’s more a reflection of the crowded court dockets and all the cases that are on them.
