State laws, known as statutes of limitations, put an end date on how long you can wait to sue the driver who hit you.

We encourage you to contact us as soon as you realize you are hurt, and your injuries and treatment allow you to reach out.
In general, you have one year to file a civil lawsuit based on your injuries under CC §3492 or for the wrongful death of a loved one under CC §2315.2.
Causes of Rear-End Crashes You Can Sue For
Rear-end collisions are very common, and most drivers hit from behind are aware that the rear driver is generally at fault. Our team often handles these cases for clients, proving fault and liability based on the case’s facts. Often, there is a wealth of evidence to prove what happened.
Most rear-end car accidents occur because the rear motorist is not paying attention to the road in front of them, making many of these distracted driving crashes. Other risk factors that might lead to rear-end collisions in Houma include:
- Drunk driving
- Drowsy driving
We can gather the evidence required to prove the other driver was negligent and caused your rear-end collision.
