- Current and future treatment for your injuries and any related expenses
- Lost wages because of your injuries
- Diminished earning capacity

- Out-of-pocket expenses
- Pain and suffering

Time Limits on Filing Civil Action in Louisiana
You likely only have one year from your accident to file a personal injury lawsuit in East Baton Rouge Parish. Because the Louisiana Civil Code (CC) §3492 sets this strict deadline, we recommend getting started on your claim as soon as possible.
Many Baton Rouge car accidents settle without going to court. However, for those that do not, or if there are other reasons why we need to file a lawsuit, we will need to do so before time runs out.
Missing the deadline could prevent us from taking your case in front of the judge and jury and seeking a court award for you. This could mean you will have a limited ability to recover just compensation for your accident losses.
