How long will I have to file my personal injury claim?

In Louisiana, you will only have a single year to file a personal injury claim after you become aware of the injury. This last point is important; the statute of limitations, that single year window of opportunity, only takes effect once you become aware that you have sustained an injury at all. This distinction may be particularly important for people who sustained an injury years ago, but who could not have been reasonably expected to be aware of the injury.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, you should speak with Lake Charles personal injury attorney N. Craig Richardson about the incident as soon after the incident as you are able. To speak with a personal injury attorney in Lake Charles about the particulars of your accident directly, please call our Lake Charles offices at (337) 381-5349 today.
