What is the Statute of Limitations for Car Accidents in Louisiana?

A statute of limitations sets a time limit on how long after an accident the plaintiff may file a lawsuit against the responsible party. According to Louisiana Civil Code Article 3492, the injured party is only allowed to file a lawsuit up to 1 year following the incident. Failure to file a lawsuit in time will lead to the case usually being dismissed by the court.

It's important to take note of the statute of limitations for your case because although you may feel confident that you won't need to file a lawsuit in order to receive compensation for your injuries, you never know whether or not the responsible party's insurance company will agree to pay you a fair amount for your injuries. Don't wait! Contact our car accident lawyers in Monroe, LA today to discuss your situation!

Is Louisiana a "Fault" state?

Louisiana operates under what is known as "comparative negligence," which means that although the other party involved may be found ultimately responsible for the accident, you may also be held partially liable if your actions at all contributed to the crash. This in turn can reduce the amount of compensation you may be eligible to receive for your injuries. When it comes to proving liability in a car accident, it's incredibly important to have an experience car wreck attorney on your side!

Determining Liability in a Car Accident

After an accident, it is imperative that you take specific steps in order to ensure that you receive the highest amount of compensation available for your case. When you retain the assistance of our team, we will thoroughly review your specific situation and determine who may be liable for your injuries.

Each case is unique, which is why our team at Parker Alexander devotes our time and energy to ensuring that you receive the most from your case.

We investigate varying factors to determine if one of the following may be to blame:

  • Driver error –Some of the most common accident-related injuries stem from driver error. If another driver operated their vehicle in a negligent, reckless or illegal way, they could be to blame for your injuries.
  • Manufacturer of faulty part – In some situations, brake failure, steering failure or other component may have failed and caused detrimental damage. If product liability is to blame, you can ensure that Parker Alexander will retain compensation for you.
  • City, parish, or state where the accident occurred –Ill-maintained roads, poor signage, improper speed limits; these could all come into effect after a car accident. Our car accident lawyers in Monroe will look at each possible scenario
