When you are injured due to someone else’s negligence, you deserve compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. But getting compensation is not always easy. The corporate interests of insurers often put profits over your best interests; these well-funded companies are known for their tactics in paying as little as possible on injury claims.

Steps in the Personal Injury Claim Process

Many injury victims are uncertain about what to do in the wake of an accident caused by the negligence, wrongdoing, or deliberate malice of another. You know you deserve compensation but may not know how to get it. Furthermore, you may be deterred by the claim process when dealing with insurers. 

At Tonry & Giraud, we can guide you through every step of the process, including:  

  • Gathering evidence: To win your case, we must prove that the other party was negligent and caused your injuries. We gather evidence such as accident reports, witness testimony, medical records, and more to help us build the strongest possible case on your behalf.
  • Calculating damages: Before we can file a claim, we will need to calculate the full value of your case. This can include economic and noneconomic damages. We work with experts in various fields to help us determine this.
  • Filing a claim: Once we have calculated damages, we will file a claim with the other party’s insurance company. We handle all communications and negotiations on your behalf and fight to get you the compensation you deserve.
  • Go to trial: If we cannot reach a fair settlement with the insurance company, we can take your case to trial. Our team has extensive trial experience, and we are unafraid to take on the big insurance companies in court.
  • Get you the compensation you deserve: Our goal is to help you get the maximum compensation you are entitled to for what you have suffered and lost and the resources needed to rebuild your life. 

How Long Do You Have to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Louisiana?

In Louisiana, you generally have one year from the accident date to file a personal injury lawsuit. This is known as the “statute of limitations.”  However, some exceptions to this rule apply. 

For example, if you are filing a personal injury lawsuit against a government agency, you may have as little as 60 days to file a “notice of claim” with the agency. If you fail to do so, you may lose your right to file a lawsuit.

It is vital to speak with a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after your accident to ensure that your case is handled correctly and promptly and to avoid any complications.
