What is the Statute of Limitations in Louisiana to Bring a Car Accident Case?

The statute of limitations, the amount of time that you have to bring a claim following a Louisiana auto accident case is typically one year from the date of the accident. For example if an accident occurred on January 1, 2016, a suit would have to be filed on or before January 1 of 2017, or else your rights may be forever lost.
