If you or someone you love were hurt in an accident caused by another person’s negligence or recklessness, you might have the foundation of a personal injury insurance claim or lawsuit.
A lawyer might be able to help you prove the at-fault party in your personal injury case owed you a duty of care, breached their responsibility, and that their breach of duty led to your injuries. We might also be able to prove their actions had financial consequences for you. Finally, we can help you prove the impact of those financial consequences and the at-fault party’s liability.
A Jefferson Parish personal injury lawyer may be able to serve as your advocate while you pursue financial recovery from the at-fault party. Call (337) 777-7777 to reach a Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers team member at your earliest convenience.
Physical and Financial Recovery From an Injury Takes Time
According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), your personal injury claim is more likely to end with an insurance settlement than by going to court. If we cannot reach an acceptable settlement agreement with the at-fault party or their insurance provider, we will take our fight for compensation to trial to help ensure you get the full monetary award you deserve.
To preserve your right to file a lawsuit in Jefferson Parish, our team will ensure we comply with the relevant statute of limitations. According to Louisiana Civil Code (CC) § 3492, you generally have only a year to file a lawsuit for personal injury. If someone you love lost their lives because of an injury, the same time restriction applies to filing a wrongful death lawsuit.
Your lawsuit must be filed in a timely fashion. We can help you eliminate the risk of running out of time to file your lawsuit. Our team will work hard to prepare and file your lawsuit on time and to ensure outright dismissal of your case due to an expired statute of limitations is never a threat to your right to compensation.
