Personal injury involves injury to an individual. Any accident or injury against a person can constitute a tort – whether it be in a motor vehicle accident, the use of a product or the negligence of a professional. Consulting with an experienced personal injury attorney like those with the Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess can provide information on whether to pursue an action in court.
Louisiana laws set a deadline, or “statute of limitations,” on the amount of time you have to file a personal injury lawsuit in court after an injury. In Louisiana, this deadline falls one year after the date of the accident in most cases. The key here is that you’ll likely lose your right to file a lawsuit over the incident if you miss the one-year window, so make sure you keep this rule in mind.
