HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO BRING A LAWSUIT?
If you have been injured it is critical to file your lawsuit in a timely manner. In order for a lawsuit to be valid and enforceable, it must be brought forth within the proper time frame referred to as prescription. Louisiana has a relatively short prescription period for lawsuits, which vary by injury. Generally, prescription in Louisiana begins to run at the time when a "cause of action arises" - in other words, at the time when an injury occurs. In order to recover, you have ONE year from the date of injury to bring forth a claim on your injury.
