Let Us Start Preparing Your Lawsuit Right Away
When you are involved in a car accident, you may be able to prove liability and seek compensation for your damages. When the accident was caused by the defective design or manufacture of the other involved vehicles or its components, proving negligence and assigning fault might be a much more difficult and involved process.
While that might be the case, the cause of your accident may not alter the time you have to file your personal injury lawsuit. According to Louisiana Civil Code (CC) §3492, you generally have one year to file your lawsuit. Failure to comply with the statute of limitations could result in an inability to seek the compensation you are entitled to due to neglect.
You can avoid this negative and costly consequence of filing your lawsuit later than the law allows. With early involvement, our team might be able to ensure your lawsuit is filed on time and your right to compensation from the at-fault driver is not put at risk.

Define the Value of Your Personal Injury Lawsuit
Defining the actual value of your personal injury lawsuit is a complex and complicated process. It can also be time-consuming because the expenses related to your injuries might come from a lot of different directions. This might require you to collect bills, receipts, documents, and other evidence of the cost of your injuries from a variety of outlets.
You might be entitled to recover economic damages, which might mean collecting and calculating bills from a number of healthcare facilities, physicians, multiple employers, and mechanics.
Your economic damages might include:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Past and future loss of income
- Property damage or destruction
You might also be entitled to recover non-economic damages. On your own, these might be difficult to calculate. Our team might help you assign a financial value to these intangible, non-economic damages:
- Mental and emotional distress
- Pain and suffering
- Physical impairment or disfigurement
When you are ready to compile the required documents to prove the cost of the accident, calculate your expenses, and assign an accurate value to your lawsuit, our team is here to help. We might also use the assigned value of your lawsuit to drive successful settlement negotiations.
