How to File a Personal Injury Claim in Louisiana

If you have been seriously injured in a car accident or other serious accident in Louisiana, you may be thinking about filing a personal injury lawsuit. The first important step in filing a lawsuit is consulting with a Louisiana personal injury attorney who can look at the specifics of your accident and help you determine if you have a valid claim.

Steps to Filing a Louisiana Personal Injury Claim

There are many forms and documents that will need to be gathered and filed in order to file a personal injury claim.

These may include, but by no means are limited to, the following:

  • Complaints and Petitions: These papers give an overview of the case – the complainant or plaintiff, the defendant, what happened, and other basic facts.
  • Summons or Service Papers: These documents are delivered to the defendant. They provide information on court dates, times, and locations, what documents need to be brought or submitted, and other pertinent information. They also give the consequences of ignoring or failing to follow the instructions set forth in the documents.
  • Answer: The defendant has the right to present their side of the story or “answer” the claims you are bringing against them, and provide supporting documentation.

Again, these are but a few of the documents that will be filed during a personal injury claim. While all this may sound daunting, a qualified personal injury attorney can walk you through this process and file this paperwork on your behalf. In turn, it will be your responsibility to be honest with your attorney and help them by providing the medical records, insurance policies, and other evidence necessary to build your case.

By cooperating with your Louisiana personal injury attorney, you will become a team, and by working together you’ll greatly increase the chances of negotiating a fair settlement or winning your personal injury claim in court.
