We Urge You To Consider Legal Action Within the Statute of Limitations
According to CC Art. 3492, you generally have one year to file your injury lawsuit. Per CC Art. 2315.2, if you lost a loved one because of a bicycle accident, you have one year to file your wrongful death case.
In comparison to other states, Louisiana does not have a generous filing deadline––and it’s crucial to act within the prescribed period. If you don’t, the courts will refuse to hear your case, and the insurer could deny your claim, leaving you with few financial recovery options.
By entrusting your accident case to our team serving Cecilia, you have peace of mind knowing we’re managing your legal matters.

Compensatory Damages Following a Collision in Louisiana
Many times, our team resolves injury cases through insurance negotiations. Here, we manage all necessary communications, review the liable policy, and send demand letters. However, not all parties negotiate in good faith, and your damages may exceed the liable policy’s limits. If so, we may consider filing a lawsuit.
Compensation in your case could account for:
You could receive compensation for any necessary medical care due to your injuries, including:
- Medical equipment, such as crutches
- Doctors’ visits
- Imaging scans
We will pursue compensation for your past, present, and future injury-related losses. We will also consult with experts, review your medical records, and consider your entire situation when seeking your losses.
If you were injured while riding your bike, you might have missed work. You may not be able to work at all. If so, a settlement or court award could account for your lost tips, wages, bonuses, and promotions. We can also seek recovery for any harm to your future earning power.
Loss of Life Enjoyment
Suffering harm in a bicycle accident can prevent you from partaking in activities you once enjoyed. We believe that your settlement should account for that hardship and its toll on your life.
Pain and Suffering
Pain and suffering is a non-economic damage that reflects the challenges of your collision. The more severe your injuries, the more you can seek for this expense. Our bicycle accident team can explain more when you call.
You may have developed anxiety, depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of getting hurt. We will consult with mental health counselors to determine how much you can recover for your mental anguish.
How Much Can I Recover for My Injury-Related Losses?
You likely have many questions about what you can pursue for your economic and non-economic losses. Several factors determine the amount you can recover, including:
- The severity of the injuries you suffered
- The extent to which the injuries impact your ability to work
- Whether anyone else was at fault for causing the accident
- The insurance company’s cooperation
- The accident’s harm on your financial resources
- The period it might take you to recover from your injuries
Louisiana does not cap how much you can request in a personal injury case. We will seek everything you need and deserve to move forward with your life.
