Q: Will my case settle or will I have to go to trial?

A: The vast majority of FELA railroad injury cases settle without a trial. However, the average length of time from the filing of the FELA suit (not the claim) is 22.5 months. Railroads know this so they generally do not get serious about settling FELA lawsuits until the trial date draws near.
