how long can a lawsuit last?

I have been on a lawsuit for more than 15 years it is a civil case I imagine, and everytime that I ask my lawyer's office, they tell me that the company keeps postponing the date of trial and that they don't have any answers for me, some of the people in the case have died already and they never got their questions answered, and i was wondering if it is such thing that a case can last so long, they keep telling me that they are also going by letters, and what not, so just wanted to know if anyone out there has had some similarity to a case that lasted this long I have asked around and people just tell me that there is nothing that can be done just to wait, can someone help me with this?

    That's the legal system for you. This is the exact reason why people sit on death row for 10+ years.
