Building an Argument for Financial Recovery in Shreveport, LA
When we represent you in your accident claim, we will need to collect evidence to prove each of the following:
- That the other driver acted negligently
- That this negligent action led to your accident
- That you incurred financial losses and injuries as a result
The evidence we look for can vary, depending on the individual accident. Some things that remain the same, however, include:
- Law enforcement reports about the accident
- Photos and surveys of the scene
- Witness testimony
- Physical evidence
- Accident reconstruction data
- Video of the accident, when applicable
We will also use evidence to document the value of your losses related to your accident, including medical bills and receipts, medical records relevant to your injuries, and expert medical testimony about your prognosis and future care.

Louisiana’s Statute of Limitations on Traffic Accident Cases
Louisiana restricts how long accident victims have to file a legal action based on their injuries. Under CC §3492, victims only have one year from their accident date to seek relief in civil court.
Filing a lawsuit is not always necessary in traffic collision cases, but we need to protect your rights and ensure we can meet all applicable deadlines just the same. If necessary, we will move forward with taking the evidence you have to trial. Contact us as soon as possible after your accident so we can get to work.
