Businesses forced to relocate due to eminent domain are entitled to relocation benefits to facilitate a proper move of the business and its equipment and inventory. Relocation benefits are not technically compensation in the eminent domain proceeding. Rather, they are payments that arise under a separate, complex and detailed set of regulations.

How long will it take for my case to be tried?
Just as every piece of property is unique, so are eminent domain cases involving the valuation of property rights. Cases can range from being straight forward to extremely complicated. Typically, cases can be tried or resolved within two (2) to three (3) years from the date that the lawsuit is filed.
