As you probably know, some types of injuries are more difficult to treat than others. Furthermore, some injuries are permanent.
Have you been hurt as the result of someone else's negligence? Car wreck? Did you slip and fall? Did you get sicker from medication that was supposed to make you better? Did a routine surgical procedure turn into a nightmare? As a result, are you injured and suffering with pain? If you answered yes to these questions, it is likely that you need to seek legal counsel. Expenses and medical bills associated with accidents and the negligence of others can begin to add up quickly. Often times, those that are responsible for causing your injuries try to avoid paying for those expenses by prolonging the process. It is important to keep in mind that there are time limitations for filing a lawsuit. These time limits vary from state to state. In Louisiana, you typically have one year to file a lawsuit. If you do not file within one year, the party responsible for your injuries doesn't have to pay you anything. An experienced personal injury attorney is familiar with these time limitations and will make certain that your claim is asserted in more than enough time to preserve your rights.
