Where Should I File My Louisiana Truck Accident Injury Claim?
Since truck drivers often drive rigs which are registered in other states, it may be difficult to determine where a truck accident claim should be filed after a Louisiana accident involving a large truck.
You actually have several options on where to file your truck accident/personal injury claim, such as:
- The state the truck accident occurred
- The state where the trucking company is headquartered
- The state where the trucking company performs regular business
The state you choose to file in will have a direct impact on how your case is handled.
After your accident, it’s important to get as much information as you can about the truck driver, trucking company, and where the trucking company is located.
After you have gathered this information you can talk to a local truck accident attorney who can better advise you on the best place to file your truck injury lawsuit based on the specifics of your case. Each potential jurisdiction will have both positive and negative aspects to consider when determining the best location to file your truck accident claim; however, the proximity to where you live will also likely factor into the equation.
