New Orleans Personal Injury Attorney

Representing Victims of Negligence Since 1989

Property owners throughout the state of Louisiana are required to provide a reasonably safe environment for those who lawfully visit their property. This is true whether the property is a private residence, a commercial entity, or a public space. Though numerous laws exist to protect the interests of those injured through the negligence of another, the compensation process doesn't happen automatically. Because of a lack of knowledge or legal recourse, many injury victims miss out on the benefits lawfully owed them. Call our New Orleans personal injury attorneys today to learn about your right to receive financial compensation for your injuries.

If you've been injured on someone else's property or as a result of someone else's actions, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, take pictures of the accident scene and get contact information from anyone who witnessed it. Second, don't sign or settle anything on the spot. Third, get the medical attention you need without delay. Finally, speak to a personal injury attorney about the legal options available to you.

How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim?

Due to the complexities of personal injuries, Louisiana has statutes of limitations set for the varying accident types. Each accident type and, likewise, each accident is completely unique. The circumstances of each accident are important and may influence the time in which a person has to file their claim. In most cases, however, victims or their families have one year from the date of the accident to file a claim.
