Nothing changes your life faster than a serious injury. Even after receiving medical treatment, you may deal with pain on a regular basis. You may find that you are unable to work, participate in your former hobbies or enjoy your life as much as you once did. Many people who sustain serious injuries also develop emotional and mental health problems related to the trauma they experienced. Although no amount of compensation will repair your life completely, seeking damages from the person or organization responsible for your injuries can lighten the load and help you move forward.
About Personal Injury Cases in Louisiana
In order to receive compensation for expenses related to injuries in Louisiana, you must typically file a lawsuit against the person or organization responsible for the incident. In most cases, the state of Louisiana will require you to file your claim within one year of the incident that caused your injuries. This is known as the “statute of limitations.”
After you file your claim, the defendant may or may not offer you and out-of-court settlement. If you choose to accept a settlement offer, the case will end. However, if no settlement is offered, or if you reject the offer, your case will go to trial. If your case is successful, your settlement may include compensation to cover any medical bills, lost wages, property damage or pain and suffering you experienced because of the injury.
