Personal injury involves injury to an individual. Any time a legal obligation or responsibility is violated, a personal injury claim can potentially arise. For example, an injured victim could file a personal injury lawsuit if he or she was hurt in the following situations:
- Auto accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Dog bites
- Wrongful death
The most important factor is determining whether someone was negligent. A person who was unreasonably careless can be considered negligent and in breach of a legal duty. This gives rise to a personal injury claim in Louisiana.
Consulting with an experienced personal injury attorney like the experienced attorneys and staff at the Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess can provide information on whether to pursue an action in court.
Louisiana laws set a deadline, or “statute of limitations,” on the amount of time you have to file a personal injury lawsuit in court after an injury. In Louisiana, this deadline falls one year after the date of the accident in most cases.
In 2014, 336 people were injured as a direct result of 200 vehicular accidents in St. James Parish.
