How Long Will a PFAS Lawsuit Take?
As with any case, there is no set amount of time for a PFAS lawsuit to be completed. These cases can be complex and may take months or even years to be fully resolved.
Additionally, there may be a filing deadline known as a statute of limitations in a PFAS lawsuit. Once this period has passed, you won’t be able to file a claim seeking compensation for your injuries. If you were injured by PFAS chemicals, you should contact our lawyers immediately so you won’t miss your filing window.
What is a Contingency Fee Agreement?
Contingency fees mean you will pay the attorney a certain percentage of the money you receive if you win the case or settle it out of court. If you lose your case, the attorney does not get paid.
