When you or a loved one suffers an injury because someone else failed to act responsibly, you may need to seek the advice of a personal injury attorney. Louisiana law allows those who are injured in car accidents, suffer a dog bite or are injured in a slip and fall accident to sue the parties responsible. The responsible parties can be liable for your medical bills, time lost from work and other financial damages. However, a lawsuit must be filed within one year of suffering an injury. Failing to file in the allotted period of time could mean you are forfeiting your rights to sue the responsible party.
There are certain things we expect; that others on Louisiana roadways are not using cell phones while driving, that owners of stores are maintaining their premises safely and that dog owners are not allowing their dogs to run free. Unfortunately, this is not always the case and as a result, innocent victims of this type of neglect often have to suffer the consequences of bad actions.
