The National Motor Vehicle Safety Administration reports that over 4.5 million people were injured in vehicle accidents in 2020. Even slight accidents or fender benders can leave victims with internal injuries, broken bones, concussions, and burns. More serious accidents result in paralysis, traumatic brain injuries, emergency amputations, and death. We’ve got a serious safety problem on our roads, especially in Louisiana. Always drive carefully, but we understand that sometimes things can be out of your control.
Some injured victims face months or even years of recovery and thousands of dollars in medical expenses, all through no fault of their own. Carelessness when behind the wheel can be deadly. When reckless or irresponsible drivers cause injuries to someone else, they can be held liable for their actions. If you’ve been injured in a car accident, you have the right to seek compensation for damages, medical expenses, and more.
If you’ve been hurt in an automobile accident, don’t wait. Louisiana law states that victims have one year from the date of the accident to file a claim and waiting can result in lost evidence that could back up your claim in court. You could be entitled to significant financial compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, pain and suffering, and possibly even punitive damages. Contact the Gabe A. Duhon Law Firm at (337) 893-3423 to schedule your consultation today.
Accidents happen, but some things can be avoided. If you’ve been hurt through negligence or intentional malice of a business, employer, or individual, it can seem like your life has been turned upside down. Injuries can mean you’re unable to work, bills go unpaid, and your livelihood is now in jeopardy. Filing a claim in court could be the only way to seek recourse, especially if the at-fault party doesn’t claim responsibility.
The statute of limitations in Louisiana expires one year after the date of the accident, but don’t wait to seek legal advice. You could be eligible for damages as a result of your injury, and time is most valuable in a personal injury claim. The people or entity responsible for your injury can be liable for your medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, pain and suffering, and more.
If you’ve been hurt, intentionally or through someone else’s negligence, you could have a rightful claim in court. We have over fifteen years of experience fighting for clients and have secured thousands of dollars in compensation for victims. Call us at the Gabe A. Duhon Law Firm today at (337) 893-3423 to schedule your initial consultation.
