Obtain a Copy of Your Crash Report Right Away
According to the Louisiana Revised Statutes (RS) §32:398, you are required to submit a crash report if:
- Anyone involved in the accident is injured
- Anyone involved in the accident is fatally injured
- Property damage exceeds $500
Your crash report is valuable to our team because it will tell us how to contact the at-fault driver, his insurance company, the investigating officer, and anyone who witnessed the accident. It will also tell us:
- The primary and secondary cause of the accident
- The size and type of each involved vehicle
- The investigating officer’s notes and diagrams
- The condition and appearance of each vehicle
- Each vehicle’s traffic control condition
The crash report might also provide us with the road, weather, and lighting conditions and the date that helps us establish compliance with the statute of limitations. Provide our legal team with a copy of your crash report immediately.
Resolve Your Lawsuit without a Trial
Once your evidence file is completed and shared with the at-fault party’s representative, your potential personal injury lawsuit, like many, might be resolved outside of court. When our team is on your side, we fight hard for a favorable financial settlement with the at-fault party’s insurance company. We also make sure you are aware of these important settlement factors:
- You always make the final decision.
- An accepted settlement is final and binding.
- It may not be too late to negotiate a settlement.
We might also be able to help you avoid making a speedy settlement that does not fully reimburse you for all the expenses and losses related to the accident. When you are ready to resolve your compensation lawsuit without going to court, we might be able to help you negotiate a financial settlement on your behalf.

Do Not Overlook Louisiana’s Filing Deadline
The statute of limitations in Louisiana determines the amount of time you have to file your personal injury lawsuit. According to Louisiana Civil Code (CC) §3492, you have only a single year to file your lawsuit. In addition, if a member of your family was fatally injured in the accident, you have the same time limit for filing a wrongful death lawsuit.
Failing to meet the statute of limitations in your lawsuit might mean you are unable to legally compel compensation from the at-fault party in your lawsuit. You do not have to understand or comply with the filing deadline on your own. The sooner you put our team to work on your compensation claim, the more time we have to comply with the one-year statute of limitations.
