After an accident, you should contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. It is critical to promptly preserve evidence and begin preparing your claim to ensure that you secure maximum compensation for your accident case. Waiting too long after an accident to speak with an attorney can be detrimental to your case and financial recovery.
In Louisiana, it’s important to be aware of the statute of limitations when filing a lawsuit after an accident. In almost all personal injury claims in Louisiana, the statute of limitations is one year from the date of the injury. Failing to file your lawsuit within this period may prevent you from getting compensated.
The sooner you contact our office, the sooner we can start working for you, preserving the evidence, and building the strongest case possible against the insurance company. That’s why it is crucial to act fast to protect your rights and call our experienced staff immediately after an injury.
At The Law Offices of Chip Forstall, you pay us nothing unless and until we get you paid. We represent clients on a contingency fee basis, which means we charge a percentage of what we collect for you. Finances are often tight after an accident, especially if you have significant medical bills and lost income due to your injuries. We take the financial risk of litigation off of our clients so they can focus on getting better. If we don’t win your case, you don’t pay us anything.
The two most important things we decide at a consultation are:
- If you have a case
- If we can help you
During the consultation, we will cover important details such as the accident itself, the nature of your injury, the insurance carriers involved, the police investigation/report, and other evidence that could help your case, such as a surveillance cameras and witnesses. These factors will help us gather the necessary information to build the strongest case possible to ensure maximum recovery for your injuries.
