New Orleans Personal Injury FAQ

How long do I have to file a claim in New Orleans?

The liberative prescription for personal injury claims in Louisiana is one year. You’ll have one year from when your injury or car, truck, or motorcycle accident occurred to file a claim if you want the court to hear your case. It’s essential to contact an injury lawyer as soon as possible if you want a chance at recovering compensation.

How will Louisiana’s comparative negligence law affect my case?

Louisiana’s comparative negligence law allows anyone involved in an accident to recover compensation for damages they’ve suffered regardless of whether they’ve contributed fault in the accident. The court will, however, deduct each party’s percentage of fault from their overall settlement. Your personal injury attorney in New Orleans can provide you with more information on how this law relates to your case.

Is there a maximum amount I can receive in my injury claim?

The state of Louisiana doesn’t regulate the amount you can receive in an injury claim unless the claim is for medical malpractice. It’s essential to account for all your economic and non-economic damages so you can recover the full amount you’re owed.

Do I have to go to court to settle my case?

We can’t determine whether court is necessary until your case begins. We try to settle most cases in pretrial negotiations, but if the defendant refuses to offer you the settlement you deserve, we’re ready to fight for what you’re owed in court.

What is a contingency fee?

A contingency fee is a method of payment that makes it so you don’t have to pay up front for legal services. Our attorney fees are contingent upon us winning your case. We’ll discuss the contingency fee before moving forward with your case; this fee is usually a percentage of the settlement won. Once we successfully resolve your case, you’ll pay us the agreed-upon percentage.
