Yes. If you’re considering filing a personal injury lawsuit over a car accident, slip and fall, or any other kind of personal injury, the answer comes down to “damages.”
The value is determined by the type of case, court’s review of similar cases, and what was paid in these cases.
Please note that the time-limit to file a suit commences from the day injury or damage is sustained. It does not apply to minors or interdicts in actions involving permanent disability and brought pursuant to the Louisiana Products Liability Act or state law governing product liability actions in effect at the time of the injury or damage.
