Different types of cases have different rules about the time limits in which a case must be filed. Generally, personal injury cases in Louisiana must be filed within 1 year of the date of the accident that caused the injury. However, it is critical that you contact an attorney as soon as possible to discuss the individual facts and circumstances of your case. You may have more or less than 1 year to file your case.
