Accident laws in Louisiana
Louisiana is one of the rare few states in the nation that falls under a direct action state when it comes to auto-accident lawsuits, according to Lake Charles LA accident attorneys.
Essentially, a direct action state is one in which a plaintiff is allowed to name the concerned insurance company as a defendant in the lawsuit. Lake Charles accident attorneys find this beneficial for the petitioner, since the lawsuit clearly outlines the fact that the damages will be the financial responsibility of an insurance company not that of the person who directly or indirectly caused the accident itself. This does seem pretty incredible. Moreover, this helps jurors and judges grant awards to the victim without too much hesitation.
Legislation surrounding accidents in Louisiana also includes a statute of limitations which stipulates that any claim should be filed within one year of the date of the accident. If this does not happen, the lawsuit may be dismissed.
