How can Pierce & Shows help with your car accident case in Baton Rouge?

It’s no secret – accident victims that have legal representation recover more compensations compared to those that do not have a lawyer.

After a wreck, victims are contacted by the insurance company of the at-fault driver. The insurers take advantage of the situation and try to rush the victims into accepting a settlement that is usually less than the true value of the claim. 

That’s why having a lawyer can help to protect your rights and ensure that your best interests are being protected while you focus on the recovery process.

How long do you have to file a car accident claim in Louisiana?

Most states, including Louisiana, have laws in place that mandate how long you have to file a lawsuit. These laws are called statute of limitation laws. 

The Louisiana statute of limitations for filing car accident cases is one year. The clock starts on the day of the accident. This statute of limitations applies to cases that are seeking compensation for all damages, including property damage, injury, and medical expenses.

It is possible to try and file a car accident claim outside the legally allowed one-year timeframe. However, you can almost guarantee that the defendant will try and get the case thrown out because of the missed deadline.
