Frequently Asked Questions
Below are a few commonly asked questions to help you familiarize with the process and requirements of personal injury cases in Louisiana. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for further questions.
How do I Know if I Have a Case?
A: Have you been injured at the hands of another – whether intentionally or as a result of negligence? That’s the first step. From there, the plaintiff (the one filing the lawsuit) must prove the damages due based on a few different standards established in prior lawsuits. This is where we come – call us so we can help you take it from there.
What is the Difference Between Personal Injury Cases and Breaking the Law?
A: A personal injury case is considered a civil lawsuit, meaning the case is between two private parties. It may be settled out of court, or court may be an option if a settlement can’t be agreed upon beforehand. In those cases, the court acts as a mediator to help determine what is fair and due.
How Soon After my Injury do I Need to File my Lawsuit?
A: This time limit is referred to as a statute of limitations. In Louisiana, the statute of limitation for personal injury cases is one year. This means cases must be filed within one year of the incident occurring.
What Does it Mean to Settle a Case?
A: Settling a case means you agree to accept a settlement, usually monetary, without taking the case into court. In return, you agree to absolve the other party of any further liability. As your lawyer, we will help you make sure the settlement you’re receiving is fair and just.
