Louisiana’s personal injury statutes can be very confusing and there are some things you need to know. First, personal injury claims must be filed not later than one year from the date of the incident that caused the injury. Secondarily, Louisiana is a comparative fault state meaning if you are partially responsible for the accident that caused your injury, your award may be reduced by the portion of fault that is yours. You have certain rights under the personal injury statutes and unfortunately, you cannot count on insurance companies to do the right thing when you file a claim since they are protecting their own bottom line.
