How Long Do I Have to File a Claim?
The State of Lousiana has a one year statutue of limitations on personal injury claims. That means you must file your claim within one year from the date of the accident. If you miss that one year window, you stand very little chance of having your case heard.
Can I Still Get Compensation If I Share Fault?
Under Louisana's comparative fault law, even if you are parially to blame for the accident that caused your injury, you can still receive compensation in a personal injury claim. When you file your personal injury claim, the court will determine what percentage you are to blame for the accident. That percentage will then be deducted from the amount of compensation you were awarded. For example, if you were award $50,000 in recovery, and were determined to be 10% responsible for the accident, you would only receive $45,000 in total compensation.
