Don’t jeopardize your right to legal action

The statute of limitations in Louisiana allows just one year from the date of an auto accident to file a claim for personal injury or wrongful death. While this may seem like ample time to pursue legal action against responsible parties, this time frame is relatively short for your attorney to investigate, interview witnesses, call upon industry experts and build a persuasive claim that speaks to the full range of your property damage, injuries and economic losses.

Needless to say, it’s best to call Bart Bernard Injury Lawyers as soon as possible after a car wreck. Anything you tell the insurance company can be misconstrued or used against you, so it’s important to seek legal counsel before signing any documents or statements.
