Personal Injury Tips

Things to know if you are injured in Louisiana

If you have suffered an injury due to the negligence of another, it is important to know:

  • You have one year to file a lawsuit against the person who is responsible for your injuries
  • Not to make any statements to insurance companies or police before consulting with an experienced lawyer like Thomas Townsley
  • To inform the person who caused your injury that you will be filing a lawsuit against him or her
  • To take photographs of your automobile accident if you are able.  This can be extremely beneficial to your case.
  • To write down everything you can about your accident
  • To get the names, phone numbers and addresses of any witnesses to your accident

What is the person who caused your accident responsible for?

If you have caused injury to another person, you are legally responsible for:

  • Medical costs
  • The time you are out of work
  • The time you will be spending at therapy and medical appointments
  • The expense of damages to your automobile or other property
  • Disability and disfigurement expenses
