Statute of Limitations

Statute of limitations is a name that refers to a law that limits the time you have to file a lawsuit. There are different time limits depending on the case you have. For example, personal injury cases may have different time limits than other claims, such as breach of contract. Also, different states have different statute of limitations. In Louisiana, the statute of limitations period is referred to as "prescription," and when it is too late to file a lawsuit, we say that a claim has "prescribed." The statute of limitation in Louisiana for a personal injury case is one year from the date of the injury. If you are injured in an auto accident, you have one year from the date of your injury to file a lawsuit.
