Louisiana Personal Injury Statute of Limitations

Louisiana law establishes a legal deadline known as a "statute of limitations" which limits how long you have to take legal action after an injury. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Louisiana is one year from the date of the injury. If this deadline expires, you may lose your right to seek compensation.

This deadline may sometimes be extended if:

  • The injured party is a minor under 18
  • The injury or illness is caused by a defective product and the plaintiff did not know the true nature or cause of the injury

Since adhering to this statute of limitations can ultimately make or break your case, it is crucial to act fast after an injury and speak to an attorney as soon as possible to ensure your compliance with all relevant legal deadlines.
